electioneering by His Master's Voice
published yesterday in His Master's Voice, though not visible today on their website. This "story" features the former MP Martin Salter and the former leader of Reading Borough Council, Dictatorship Dave "moronic members of the public" Sutton and some schoolchildren, who say they would like to have summer camps for Whitley children. But there is no story. They campaigned for these camps last year. They have not yet got them. The only reason to publish this picture is to get their precious boy into the paper. If Mr Salter held some actual position in the community there might be some justification for printing a picture of him, though even then it would be questionable in the middle of a general election campaign. But he does not. In his final message to constituents he thanks the Reading Evening Post for all their support, as well he might. Mr Murrill found it easier than journalism. Now tell us Murrill why you published this in mid-election campaign.
