Electronic cigarettes part of the UK election debate

April 8, 2015

Electronic cigarettes are having a small positive space created for them within the UK’s general election debate.

Recently, Totally Wicked announced that it had launched a number of General Election E-liquids ahead of the elections due to be held on May 7.

The promotion is said to allow voters to register their political preference by choosing their favourite party political e-liquid, of which there are five: one each for the Conservative, Labour, Liberal, UKIP and Green parties.

Now, Max Pemberton, writing in the online Telegraph, has said that he hopes that after the election Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP, and Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberals, use whatever power they have to ensure that the electronic cigarette industry is not regulated out of existence.

‘The evidence is clear: tobacco kills, nicotine doesn’t,’ Pemberton wrote.

Pemberton mentioned Farage and Clegg because the former had started using electronic cigarettes as a way of cutting down on the number of traditional tobacco cigarettes he smoked, and the latter had made the switch to vaping completely.
