UKIP To Scrap East End Life

Posted on | Friday, 11 April 2014 | No Comments

We can discuss Editorial integrity at length. But with the soon to be despatched East End Life the conversation has to be brief because integrity simply doesn't exist in this rag; never has under the current regime, never will.
This is the latest edition - post the arrival of Inspectors from PriceWaterhouseCooopers on the express orders of the Department for Communities and Local Government. Nothing on the front page to report what just about every national newspaper covered!
But the rag still carries '5' pictures of Lutfur Rahman, but more than this...remembering there are 51 Councillors across all parties in the Council ...6 pictures of (Rahman supporting) Councillors - all  Independents (3 of which are in Rahman's Cabinet). Go figure. Open, balanced journalism? or quisling reporters?

In fact coverage came in a defensive series of statements on page three..with no mention of the Ministers statement which read, '“It is a matter of public record that I have long been concerned about a worrying pattern of divisive community politics and alleged mismanagement of public money by the mayoral administration in Tower Hamlets'. Integrity?


Finally, how about this on a later page...

No title but its all about Roman Road Parking. Reading through you'd expect to find out who the 3 are holding up the plaque in the picture. No, just the mention of Councillor Shahed Ali (Independent in case you weren't aware).

UKIP are committed to scape this politically divisive circular posing to be a newspaper
