did he forget to remember?

Mr Salter is new to blogging, so perhaps he can be forgiven for not realising that if you blog about something it kind of stays there, so that if you say you are going to do something and then don't do it, people are going to notice. Someone in a position to know who did and did not attend the Holocaust Memorial Day event in Reading yesterday informs me thus:

In the Telegraph, Salter said he was going fishing on Sunday (yesterday) before attending the Holocaust Memorial Day meeting at the Council in the evening. Well surprise, surprise, he didn’t bother turning up for the meeting. For him to do as he said really would have been a surprise.

And the meeting was in Reading East, his favourite constituency!

Maybe MS has been watching Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, currently running on the Freeview Fiver channel...

Funny that he seems to be in the Post's photo then! Check your facts, girlie, like a Proper Journalist should.

oooh, girlie is it? excellent stuff. So, let's get this straight. My correspondent, who was at the event, says he did not turn up. Maybe that person is lying. Maybe. But there are others who were there who can say whether or not he was there. And since when did a picture in His Master's Voice mean anything? And, excuse me, but it is a Fact that I received an email with the content I published. Facts. Yes. And I am no more a journalist than the editor of the Reading Evening POst is.

Two different events. The one on Sunday in the council chamber - that he'd said he was going to - he didn't show up. The photo is not of the council chamber
