Humble Pie?

Posted by davidburbage on June 24, 2011

It appears that good news does sell newspapers!

The Maidenhead Advertiser leads yesterday with a Maidenhead Town Centre Improving front page story. Excellent, it can be done!

However, all is not as it seems. In the sister paper, the Windsor Express it headlined with “5 Councillors get warning letters” for unpaid council tax!

I hope this investment in a good news headline will be sustained.

But, as Yoda might not have said, one swallow does a summer make not.

    And sadly no apology from the leader of the Coservative group – that some of his Consevative councillors did not pay their council tax on time. He just criticises the newspapers for reporting it.
