So the reports of journalism being dead were premature, but it's still on the endangered species list. Thanks Postmodern Smoking glad you posted that and will have be nice to those people that flog The Economist subscriptions outside work every month or so.
It will be all imports affected by Brexit not just from the EU, we will be on WTO rules until we do a trade deal which each country that will make many things more expensive for up to 10 years. Most of the raw materials and virtually all hardware comes from abroad. ATM if we align with the US Trump will demand we join the tariff battle with China, he may be gone by then, but there are so many unknowns, but it is extremely unlikely imports or anything that uses imported raw materials will be cheaper.
Another aspect is regulation, back in the day the UK wanted harsher restrictions than the TPD, I wouldn't have worried a year ago as there are so many vapers in the UK but with the amount of scare stories lately it wouldn't surprise me if some politician tried to bring in some knee jerk regulation, just look at what is happening in the US.
Be careful what you wish for, remember the UK gov wanted the EU to put E-Cigs under med regs when the TPD was being written and that may well have been the case if we were not in the EU then. I don't see UK regulations getting better if we Brexit, but hopefully the huge uptake in the UK will prevent a UK government putting knee-jerk restrictions on vaping .
