the news values behind this? The latest columnist for the Reading Chronicle is - Mr Salter. From Australia. About his harbourside flat in Sydney and his lucrative new career (he says) as a travel and fishing writer. Just when it seemed that the Reading dead-tree media had started to come to their senses and employ columnists, like Mr London Street recently in the Post, who actually wrote about the place and not about their own tedious egos. I would love to know who thought this was a good idea, what the actual MP for Reading West thinks about it, and how much the Chronicle are paying for this stuff. After all, the corrupt little scumbag Joe Wise doesn't work for the Chronoicle any more; last time I looked he was lengthening waiting lists at the Royal Berks Hospital (sue me, Joe.) Just asking. Happy Christmas.
