I read an online Daily Mail article today after googling Liz McColgan... readers' comments questioning whether Liz's outfit was appropriate for a court appearance.  Says it all really.

If smoking was banned, organised crime would go through the roof.

Re the tax vs NHS cost thing, I checked this out last time this topic came up on the forum (a couple of months ago), and the ONS and Government stats were pretty emphatic that the tax revenue outweighs the cost to the NHS almost tenfold. The only thing that means is that it's unlikely the Government will ever ban it.
Excellent. I'd like to see those statistics. Could you point me in the right direction please? Couldn't find them on the ONS site. Cheers.

Amazing what a quick google turns up, if you really want to find what you're looking for.

We've been underestimating the annual tax income on tobacco, seems to be closer to £9bn now.

Just wondering, could you clarify what you mean by that last sentence? Cheers.
