It would appear that rumours of a withdrawal of Herr Bartlett's motion were correct. The reason given for this change of tack, though, are the special kind of Bartlett bonkers we've come to expect.
"The motion to ban smoking in Stony Stratford will not take place at tomorrow's town council meeting (Tuesday) and will now be discussed at the next meeting in September.So apparently Councillor Bartlet is happy to postpone to help his opponents because their arguments are flimsy? With excuses like that, is he a MEP?
As reported in last week's MK NEWS, Councillor Paul Bartlett was planning to postpone his motion as he believes his opponents' arguments are 'flimsy' and they need more time to prepare."
No doubt in September he will try again to impose the ban but hoping no-one will notice.
