One of the oldest jokes in journalism is “you should never let the facts get in the way of a good story”. As an ex-reporter I’ve used the gag myself on many an occasion, but in truth I have the greatest respect for journalists, especially the ones at the Chad.
That’s why I was so disappointed by the ridiculous headline in last week’s edition which bore no relation to reality.
It’s one of the oldest sayings of the Labour movement to say that unity is our strength and it is a saying we take extremely seriously in Ashfield Labour.
Nothing will ever divide us – in fact a daft headline like that just makes us stronger and more determined to work together for all our constituents.
Come on Chad headline writers, you are better than this.
