Funny thing - went to buy some tobacco from my usual Indian shop and saw that there was no tobacco on the shelves anymore. It was all under the counter. Apparently customs officials actually started to perform checks so regular tobacco doesn't get sold. UK DUTY on all Shisha!
I was still able to get some at a good price since I am a regular there but I don;t know how much this will last. Soon I either have to get a job or go on vacation in Egypt.
