22nd June 2011. This site ‘nannystate’ has been operating for about 10 years. Recently the tobacco and alcohol industry started a lobby site www.nannastate.com.au to lobby against amongst other things impending legislation on cigarette packaging, proposed amendment to trading hours etc. To save you wasting time reading my blog if you were after ‘nannastate’ and have had finger problems, I would just like you to know that on balance because of the addictive nature of the products, I hold the tobacco, gambling and alcohol industries in some contempt.
