Happy Birthday to Us! One Year Old Today!

Yes, we are 1 year old today. We never expected in our wildest dreams for it to grow into this. We started offering a service but it soon turned into fighting a cause. We've gained many friends and learnt a great deal from you. We try and push the barriers as much as we can and with your help we'll continue to do so. Thanks to you all, we appreciate you more than you'll ever know. Smoking Hot & Zaphod.

Yay! ... celebration drink and smokes!


  1. Many Happy returns on your 1st Birthday, although, one would hope, you can make enough of a difference to never need a second birthday. (I won't be holding my breath though).
    Congratulations on the milestone.

    Congratz guys, and carry on carrying on into that Valley.

    "Out of concealment
    Blank and stark eyed
    Why so uncertain
    This culture deceives
    Prophesised, brainwashed
    Tomorrow's demise
    All systems failing
    The placards unroll"

  4. appy berfday. Kan we be frends pwleeze?


  5. Outstanding 1st year, well done.


  6. Congrats and many more !

    (Well, not too much more. Too much more means fighting UKBA forever and ever - and of course one day would be good to see the battle settled, once and for all, in favor of the individual and not the thieving, lying, cheating government b*stards at UKBA.)

  7. Wonderful first year.Please keep going. You'll grind the b***** down in the end. You work so hard at it, what can we cheering bystanders do to aid the cause ? Surely applause isn't enough ?

  8. Best informative site about buying smokes abroad bar none! Great site. H'ppy birthday!

  9. Terrific !!!
    I wish that the people that you have helped and given excellent advice to could do more to help the cause.

    'Thank you' doesn't seem enough.

    Thanks again, Mags x

  11. All the best guys, keep it going :)

  15. Congrats. Great cause. Great writing. The Red Mustang was a gem.

    Look like you've had an additional surprise present today. Apparently the UKBA are not fit for purpose. You may well have suggested that on more than one occasion.

    From a non-smoker who recognises everyones rights to choose.


"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
