unfxxxingbelievable

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.

And why does it say "by Martin Salter MP" at the top of the page? He ceased to be an MP when parliament was disolved in April.

See he finally admits to smoking whilst fishing.

The Chronicle. Don't you just love it, so stuck in the past they don't even acknowledge what happened this year. Not even fit for your fish and chips.

To continue the turkey theme - it has been my experience that the parson's nose always rises to the top of the muck pile.

Only 2 comments on the Chronic site, and he gets a good strafing in both.

Not a bad start.

Ha Salter described by the Guardian Diary (So it must be true) as the "Potty mouthed MP" can only find interesting about the cultural difference between the UK and Australia the 'swearing' there.

Funny that SAlter can only do Canada and Australia. Can he not go fsarther than the white former colonies? Clearly a racist.

Get over it. He's gone and means nothing to Reading.

Precisely. And something is very rotten if the Chronicle can print a column from him and call it "Martin Salter MP". This has got to be stopped. By legal action if necessary.
