A certain councillor in the vast borough of Stony Stratford near Milton Keynes blusters away on how smokers should be prohibited from smoking in public.
In his rambling diatribe he invokes SHS, Children, germ warfare (Saliva) , and the spurious argument that smokers are a drain on the NHS. (From Government figures, so called smoking related illness costs the NHS £2.7 Billion. However tax from smokers comes in at an excess of £10 billion).
Have a listen to his diatribe on the Jeremy Vine show. Then decide if you want councillors of his ilk to run your local services.
Starts at 35 minutes in.
If you have nothing to do on the 16th, why not go and visit the place and state your disproval. Others will be there.
Four excellent speakers have so far been confirmed, and the event has received support from The Freedom Association, Big Brother Watch, Forest, UKIP, Freedom2Choose, and - of course - our esteemed mascot.
Oh and the Media will be attending.
Local press will be in attendance and BBC Look East will be bringing their cameras along on the day.
