John Oliver on a cigarette company’s international bullying

This clip from a recent Last Week Tonight is both funny and topical (though lengthy, at 18 minutes). John Oliver reveals not only the lengths to which Philip Morris will go to oppose anti-smoking regulations worldwide but also the potentially devastating effect of international trade deals on government safety regulation (a subject we most recently discussed here in connection with the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations).

Here’s the John Oliver clip. Enjoy and share.
