Nick Hogan, the publican who let his drinkers smoke, is a free man tonight, back behind the bar rather than behind bars, thanks to blog readers and libertarians who raised the £8,664.50 to spring him from jail.
Anna Raccoon has the full story, Old Holborn organised the fund raising and Guido was more than happy to publicise it. Within hours co-conspirators had raised thousands to spring him from jail.
Nick Hogan is once more in the bosom of his family, able to support his wife Denise and their children, instead of being locked up with violent criminals.
A happy ending thanks to the generosity of blog readers…
UPDATE : Guy News was there and has footage of the cash being delivered to the jail by Old Holborn. (Contact Emily.Nomates@GuyNews.TV for syndication rights).
