Our boy done good. More than 100 souls showed up to express their contempt for Cllr Bartlett, including Dave Atherton, Witterings from Witney, Misanthrope Girl, The Boiling Frog, Fuel Injected Moose, Lid on a Scream, Anonymong, Christopher Snowdon, Nigel Farage, Bill Etheridge, Patrick Hayes, David Odell and Roger Helmer.
Bill Etheridge of the Freedom Association pictured Winston Churchill's response if the infamous Cllr Bartlett had tried to snatch his cigar as he walked down the streets of Stony Stratford.
Patrick Hayes of Spiked urged us to draw a line in the sand and make a start at getting our freedoms back.
Roger Ebert MEP, who hasn't smoked for 40 years, pledged to join us all in a civil disobedience smoke on the streets of the town if the ban is passed, "...even if I throw up afterwards."
You can see highlights of the speeches here.
Nigel Farage of UKIP, like all the speakers, was very clear that smoking has precious little to do with the matter. Rather, this is about halting the advance of a state that has lost any sense of its proper limits.
Be in no doubt this event was a great success. Well done that man Puddlecote!
