Now if they had been issued with such a notice one would think it would be in their own interests to release it. lt would show actual proof that such a seizure by HMRC was factual.
What we are left with is that all 3 companies will have us believe that all 3 had large seizures of their own product. Namely, Golden Virginia, Amber Leaf and Cutters Choice. Also we are led to believe that HMRC didn't release to the press information on at least 3 large seizures! ... yeah, right.
So, Chairman Iain Napier of Imperial Tobacco, President of Japan Tobacco International Pierre de Labouchere and Chairman Richard Burrows of British American Tobacco ... l think we can now add you to the list of organisations who actively or passively harass and intimidate legitimate UK Shoppers.
You now sit with UKBA, HMRC, Government, MSM, ASH and other anti- smoking fascist groups. You should hang your heads in shame but you won't because you think that by your appeasement these groups will be kinder to you. You really must live in cloud cuckooland. l note that none of you got invited to the recent summit on illicit tobacco. Don't you understand? ... they don't want you and yet you want to be their friends? ... hahaha. You really are beyond belief. Why don't you grow some and make a stand? l won't hold my breath.
In the meantime, us smokers will carry on as before. We are very resolute and won't be broken whether it be by anti-smoking laws, anti-smoking fascists, HMRC, UKBA, Government ... and now you!
You are now are enemy but other tobacco companies will glady take our trade as will man with van. Your actions have done nothing to stop illicit trade whatsoever ... in fact you've increased it whilst stabbing us legitimate shoppers in the back. Most of us will find our legitimate supplies from your competitors but others will now turn to man with van even more. You'll be definitely on his Xmas card list!
You've treated us with utter contempt in the belief that we are stupid ... well, we are not and we WON'T SURRENDER ... unlike you!
