Oh, for f...

What a bunch of brainless, paranoid, twitchy, gormless...

Having an awful lot of trouble commenting on this without using some quite harsh words.

Still, I'm sure everyone's seen it on the news by now, but what a massive waste of public services.

What else is "a genuinely concerned member of public" capable of?

Gah.

I dread to think what people will make of this. I feel the need to vent somebody else's spleen, with great prejudice.

It is a good argument against stealth vaping, if the person in question had been openly vaping then they may have just been asked to stop or explain what they are doing. This now gives the government open licence to add e-cigs to the smoking ban and it would not surprise me if they try and rush it through before the Olympics.

Re: M6 Closed Due To Electronic Cigarette?
It was a valid concern since when the London Bombing happened, the bus that got blown up had many witnesses reporting a rucksack with smoke coming out if I remember correctly.

We need to track them down in any case and get their story.

I was stealthing on a 3 hour train journey on Monday and Today as an experiment and not one person even seemed to realise what I was doing. I saw nobody looking over at me when doing it but I was using a small VV device (Double AA box size). I even deliberately let some vapour "escape" (but not a full exhale since I produce loadsa vapour) on a few occasions as I was observing my fellow passengers to see any reactions.
On todays journey I was at a table with another passenger sitting opposite and four people at the table across the way and still managed to get through 1.4ml of 50/50 @ 4.2V regulated on a 2.5 Ohm atty.

I am me, nobody else. . . .
