But I want my cuppa now, not next year! 
Don't you watch Ray Mears? try buying a cheap lighting flint, Doc http://www.whipperleys.co.uk/acatalog/fire_steels_flint_fire_starters_tinder.htmlFrom experiance, i have never had a problem lighting any kind of paper. I would (perhaps wrongly) suggest the type of coating on the paper or something to do with the weather conditions over the last few days.
Not sure that coating as such would be as much an issue, but probably more to do with the fibres of the paper, and contact between the paper and air.
