Do not expect empathy/sympathy from us, if you are going to ask not to suffer for what your grandparents did, if you are going to boast about their achievements.
You can't have it both ways.
I never asked for sympathy, i was pointing out the reality that nobody would wish to suffer because of what happened 100+ years ago, thats just stupid and would only result in the world standing still instead of learning from its mistakes and moving on.
We know it was wrong but then every country has done bad things at some point in history.
How much is it for a pack of ciggies in England (in a standard shop)? I'll never forget the story of an Englishman who went to America and asked, 'do you have any fags?'. Rumour has it that the bar regulars were in stitches.
I think cigarettes are about £5.70 for 20 which is very expensive but the idea is to discourage people (tax).
Funny story though, i can just imagine it now :-D
