Vaping Election Candidate
Vapers in Power WILL be putting up a candidate for the UK General Election Jump for Joy

Our crowd-funding has been extremely successful with 75% of the target raised in just 4 days. This means we can now confirm that Liam Bryan @blaze will be standing for election in the Kingswood Constituency, Bristol.

The work starts now!

A candidate is entitled to free postage to every address in the constituency, so we will be designing a leaflet to mail out educating people on vaping and the consequences of the Tobacco Products Directive.

We have also been in contact with the local media, they are obliged to provide equal coverage to our candidate under election rules. So we can guarantee a place in the local news, in print, on radio and on television.

Every candidate also has the option of holding a public meeting with the accommodation provided free of charge (though heat and lighting is chargeable)

WE NEED YOUR HELP

We need ideas for how to maximise this golden opportunity for publicity for the vaping community.

RE: Vaping Election Candidate
Any and all contributions are welcome. Vaping as we know it, even vaping forums will be effectively banned if the TPD is enforced in full in the UK. By helping VIP in any way, big or small, you are contributing to the fight for individual vapers and vaping to continue. By doing nothing you stand to lose far more than you probably know.

Have you actually read article 20? If not I suggest you do. Pay close attention to paragraph 5, particularly item d, and think about this great forum we all enjoy and what might happen to it and certainly to other commercially supported groups. You won't like what you read but it might make you a little more keen to get involved.

Read article 20 of the TPD here

Do you mind if we don't use the bit about lubricated fingers on our election leaflet? Big Grin
