Midlands council pension pots put into tobacco firms « Express & Star.

See the last comment in this piece, and ask yourself one question.  If the local authority invests substantial sums into tobacco companies, whose objective is to maximise sales and profits, does that undermine the public health work of the local authorities whose aim is to reduce smoking prevalence?  I submit the answer is a resounding yes.  You cannot invest in the companies that kill thousands in the West Midlands every year with their products and be credible with your campaigns to reduce smoking in the population at the same time.
