TORY LEADER COMES TO VISIT - AND TOTALLY IGNORED (WELL, ALMOST)
There is something tucked away at the bottom of Page 8 in Crawley News ("Tory leader bids to save the planet", February 7)...but that's about it - as far as I can see. Absolutely nothing in Johnston Press's Crawley Observer. Now there was a time...
Interesting and amusing...especially our local Henry (Cllr Henry Smith - WSCC Leader & Crawley County Councillor (PH, W & M), who was quoted thus in that small Crawley News piece :
"We hope that before long all school buses in Crawley will run on bio-fuel. Crawley is already an impressively green town, and this will make it greener".
Oh, what wonderful nonsense from this political 'flyweight' - and particularly ironic when it comes to massive development plans here in the ancient Parish of Ifield - plans which his own Council orchestrated !
Perhaps Crawley Observer judged it was simply beyond embarrassment to give this visit any coverage...
They were probably right.
