    It’s not “very serious incidents……”
    this is typical hype by these people that should never hold these positions they have!

    a school shooting or stabbing would qualify as very serious,but selling e type cigarettes is not.

    tobacco and cigarettes were at schools in my day and always will be,it’s part of school life amongst students.
