E-Cig EU Regulation

Anyone that knows me knows that I never ever comment on politics, I find it to be a lost cause because politics is just another word for corruption and its pointless to discuss how things “should be” when in the end ALL politicians will ALWAYS end up doing what is best for themselves and their friends, they don’t even have any shame so I hate wasting time talking about the obvious, I would be ok …
