IT’S TIME TO QUIT …the EU

Why is your vape store going to close?
Why is your favourite flavour going to become unavailable?
Why is your favourite device going to be banned?
Why are prices going to go through the roof?

THERE’S ONE ANSWER – THE EUROPEAN UNION. ITS TOBACCO PRODUCTS DIRECTIVE COMES INTO FORCE ON BLACK FRIDAY – 20 MAY OF THIS YEAR.

From then on vaping businesses are going to be spending a fortune on filling in tens of thousands of meaningless forms, changing tank sizes to ones you don’t want and changing bottle sizes down to fiddly 10ml.  The government says it will cost £1.3m for the entire industry to comply with the TPD.  The industry says £988m – which is money that you will be paying.

THE INDUSTRY EXPECTS THE TPD WILL LEAD TO:

  • 53% of vape stores closing down
  • 83% of devices being banned
  • 56% of flavours being withdrawn
  • 16% of vapers stopped getting +20mg liquid
  • 48% reduction in business

… and where will that 48% be going to get their e-liquid and devices? Most from the guy in the pub who doesn’t care about health and safety. And of course others will go back to tobacco. Every vaper wants sensible regulation – but not this disastrous overregulation which has been rejected by scientists and public health officials.

 

The Prime Minister told the House of Commons in December that vaping had got one million people to quit. Yet despite this stunning public health achievement we are heading to the TPD Disaster starting on Black Friday.

But we have an answer! Thanks to our lucky stars just five weeks later – while companies still have stock of old products – three million British vapers will have a vote in the EU Referendum.

That’s more than enough to swing the referendum our way. If we win the TPD is utterly unenforceable. And even if we don’t quite win, we would still succeed because politicians throughout Britain will have seen vaper power at work. They would start to respect vapers.

So by mobilising now as Vapers for Britain we can make a huge difference.
