Paul Bartlett, the man who wants to ban smoking on the streets of Stony Stratford, has made a surprise appearance – on the Forest website.

He writes:

Why is Forest supporting death and illness through smoking?

That smokers pay tax is no reason to encourage a life threatening product. Many pay tax that covers education, law, war etc. and oppose some or all apsects of these and more.

Smoking does nothing to improve health and most patients of illness would rather have not started to smoke. Why does Forest consider that death is better than life?

In my town not one business has closed due to the current smoking legislation. Indeed, if patrons of pubs spent less on cigarettes they would have more to spend in pubs and other businesses.
