There is the answer to your letters not being published in the Advertiser, you can't get any clearer than that all you freedom loving democrats out there.

Why has the editor of The Pravdatiser not dealt with the issue in his own newspaper?

Does that letter sound biased to anyone else? :-)
Is it now ok for local papers to be openly opposed to a legal political party?

I can confirm that the Labour Group does hold meetings with the local wrags and that Adverisers editor is talking rubbish

Roy, we all know it has been going on for years. It is only now that this incompetent government is careless when it comes to information. The people involved can't spin themselves out of this as much as Mr. Porter likes to joke about the subject.

Quite right Liam.

We have a situation here where a Government report claims that TMBC has regular meetings with local editors to gain information and stop "sensationalist stories".

I don't claim it, the BNP don't claim it, various Blogs don't claim it. A Government report claims it.

In response to the claims both the Public Relations Dept of TMBC and One of the local editors deny the story. The former in private communication, the latter in Private Eye.

But neither go public in their own publications to deny the accusation. Odd.

Have they been in contact with the Government Department which issued the report originaly to demand a retraction? Or to demand that the item be removed from the document?

Do the council know what is happening?

I think they should be told, and not told what to think! (With acknowlegment to Private Eye)

I wonder why Darrell Beck has not responded yet? Why has this not been featured in the local press to make their statements clear to everyone in Tameside rather than the select few who read the Private Eye.
