  1. Well at least they’re consistent. However those figures should be broken down.

    “Every year, tobacco kills 6 million people— 5.4 million active smokers and 600,000 non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke.”

    This from an awfully reliable source, Public Health Minister George Norton of a little known country that used to be called British Guiana and is now called Guyana (land of many waters (or swamp to you and I)).

  2. “BAT alone made a profit of £5.2 billion in 2016 from their global market share of about 11%.”
    A profit of £5.2 billion worldwide is peanuts! That’s nowhere near half the unearned profit a single country such as the UK makes from tobacco taxes.
