Oz fags - buy them while you can

"Plain packaging" is a misnomer when it comes to the new Australian regs:

Although not (for many years now) a smoker, I am tempted to buy some of these, for they won't be around forever. They will be collector's items in future, and good (benson and) hedges against inflation.

Look after them well, and don't break the cellophane - condition is so important at auction.

I have even a better idea.

How about making sleeves with the brand name printed on them? People can simply slip the sleeve over their box of ciggies.

Or maybe I might get into reviving the market in cigarette cases. I'll make them very fashionable and attractive and who knows it may even encourage people to smoke.
