Ealing and Northfield

Gazette needs to sharpen up

Our main local paper, the Ealing & Acton Gazette, needs to sharpen up its act a bit.

On page 4 of today’s issue they manage to use the names of one of the new Conservative councillors and his running mate on a caption under a photo of two musicians. Obviously, Conservative candidates are multi-talented but there is a limit.

On pages 6 and 7 they cover last week’s local election. Apparently ex-mayor Potts is now called Tan rather Ian. The three Conservative councillors in Northfield, including me, have crossed the floor according to the Gazette and gone over to Labour.

Journalist Lucy Proctor perhaps betrays her own political allegiances. In the piece covering the LibDem performance she fails to convey the information that they lost a councillor.
