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!
