  Tobacco adverts: Opposer's points
Updated 13 February 2003, 13.25

The opposer disagrees with the motion:

"This house believes that tobacco adverts encourage kids to smoke."

The opposer could use the points below when making their speech.

Spaces have been left for them to add points of their own:

  • The idea that people start smoking because of advertising, or are unaware of the health risks, is nonsense.

  • People know the difference between adverts and real life.

  • Younger people, who may be more impressionable, are protected by the age-ban on smoking.

  • What motivates young people to start smoking is peer pressure, not advertising.

  • The more smoking is attacked by politicians the more attractive it becomes to young people.
