It's simply a case of party over country once again, this holds true for the reason she's a minister in the first place!Exactly as expected.
But I expected that he would be ultra-conservative. I do not smoke, so do not give a rat's ass about it being for sale or not. What I do care about is that the money trail of black market ciggies going to someone NDZ has an interest in. She is conflicted. And somehow, this entangles the Prez.
Banning smokes does not change the health of a smoker in weeks or months. This is pathetic. So while the economy may be opened a little, there were idle threats (expected) and the continued ban of tobacco products (expected). Poor all round (expected).
