Credit Where Credit Is Due
I was surprised that an earlier entry here turned into a Cambs Times / Wisbech Standard news item on their website tonight. I had begun to think that the paper had forgotten about me. Not to worry though, it appears they still read my blog. (And very welcome they are too!)
I have to be fair – I’ve had a little fun with this branch of the press recently (in response to their fun at my expense in recent weeks) and I suppose they could have dragged me over the coals on this one. A little judicious editing here and out-of-context quoting there could have made my comments look rather different than their original content.
No sign of anything like that though, the newspapers article was a fair summation of my position. Which, I suppose, means I may have been unfair in my quickie poll recently. Never mind, I’ll make it up to them. I’ll buy them some chocolates at Christmas or something.
In the meantime, I have no idea if I am about to come under fire from the public, my colleagues, or indeed the letter-writing power of the opposition (those guys can fill a letter page faster than you can shout: “but I didn’t…” if they want to. I’ve seen it. They are like Tasmanian Devils out there.)
I suppose it’s lucky I have thick skin.
Ps. (Thanks to a commentor, A.Melon, for the heads up on this.)
