"These comments have been taken from the public domain and do not necessarily represent an endorsement of the Plain Packs Protect campaign."How odd to have a page showing supporters of a campaign ... when those pictured can't be said to be actually endorsing it!
Oh yeah, and Andrew Lansley has disappeared too according to Jay in the comments.
What isn't clear is how long this deceit has been going on at the Plain Packs Protect website, because that's exactly what it was. It's quite fitting that a campaign to back a proposal based on shoddy evidence and manipulation of the truth has been itself exposed to have been deliberately disingenuous.
A government with scruples would take such underhand and dishonest behaviour into account when assessing consultation responses, but you can be sure that certain mandarins within the Department of Health will do their damnedest to sweep the campaign's devious methods under the carpet.
Be sure to read Tom Paine's conclusions as to what this whole farce says about how our modern "democracy" works.
