Open Europe blog has a post about the EU's 'HELP - for a life without tobacco' campaign.
"In other words: the European Commission spends €365 million on various tobacco programmes. €72 million of this sum is aimed at fighting tobacco while €293 million of it goes to promoting tobacco. To add to the mix, the EU has introduced tough regulations on cigarette advertising, including the “smoking kills” warning labels on cigarette packets. And in the latest twist, the Commission is now calling for an EU-wide ban on smoking in public places by 2012."
This seems to demonstrate that the time has come for the inmates to take over the asylum and then promptly leave!
