I can picture some of you, late at night, trawling the net for the latest on the tobacco display ban. John Turner, who runs Turners Newsagents in Leeds, has unearthed some pretty esoteric stuff.

"I have come across some websites that discuss issues relating to common law and lawful rebellion. This got me thinking as to the tobacco display ban. It would actually be a statute law which is a legal term and is different from 'lawful', which concerns common law."

It has clearly fascinated him and he wonders whether any part of it could be used by any organisation that represents retailers. So next time you are trawling the internet, have a look at: http://freedom.fmotl.com/Freedom.pdf or http://tpuc.org/.
