A win for all Australians

THE principled stand taken by the Gillard government on plain packaging of tobacco products continues this federal government’s willingness to punch well above its weight on issues of national and international importance.

It is a stand that has been vindicated by the High Court of Australia and one that should be welcomed by all Australians concerned with the health of the nation.

We might not have had much to brag about from the London Olympics, however a gold-medal win over big tobacco is something all Australians should be celebrating.
