Cigarettes Are No Longer Made In The UK

The pharmaceutical companies also have it all their own way because they think they can control us with an expensive pill. But, there are other methods of healing the body. So, this forum is for health issues and promoting healthy living.

Cigarettes Are No Longer Made In The UK

Cigarettes Are No Longer Made In The UK

The last ever pack of cigarettes rolled off the production line in the UK.
Imperial Tobacco in Nottingham have moved their remaining interest to mainland Europe.
Smoking habits have changed and cigarette sales are still on the decline.
One time the factory produced 52 billion cigarettes a year and employed 7,000 workers.

New rules also state that from now on all cigarettes must be sold in plain packaging.
They will have images of the harful effects of smoking and must carry extra warnings.

I can see the day that fags are banned in the UK one day.

Moving production to the continent is wrong.
Loads of people still smoke in the UK.

Looks like the cigarette industry has finally felt the pinch.
Plain packaging, no smoking in public places and high duty are major factors.
Now you can't even see them in the shops.
How the world has changed.

Serious how they shift production elsewhere for bigger profits.
Keep the bastards honest.
