“You only have to go back a few years to compare what was happening then to find out far more issues were debated publicly, and that’s the way it should be.”

Nice one old man, about time.

It seems like Don Farmer is all peppy after his travels.

Everyone thinks the media is biased when they publish something they don’t like. The Herald is a left wing rag or right wing gutter press depending on what poor soul with an interest in politics you ask. That being said though- id love you thoughts on our Times Age.

The great helmsman Bonallack doesn’t have much of a focus on politics, and frequently blathers on  romantically  about how he knows his readership.

Is he right? Are people not interested in local politics? Or  is he a kiss-arse not wanting to annoy the high office holders that take him along to lunch every now and again.

I’m inclined to think the latter. And this is very important, people should be not only blaming council for the direction they are taking..The 4th estate have a role to play too.

I hope there is a bit of fuss over this article because I would love video access to council meetings…. you could make some hilarious video compilations!
