UK government do something sensible… but don’t fucking tell anyone

It seems that from Monday, the legal age to buy tobacco in the UK rises from 16 to 18. This is a good thing. But as someone in the story points out, “only one in five 16 to 18-year-olds knew about the change”.

Likewise. I read the news every day when I’m able and at the very least scan the headlines. This is the first I’ve heard of it, which bears this out. I probably look at what’s going on in the world and at home more often and more closely than most 16-18 year olds so how did I miss it? You can blame the government for lack of advertising, but surely the news agencies should have picked up on it?
