In-fighting rather than fighting the good fight

The village is over-run by snakes, beset by broken cobbles, gearing up to host fetes, art-exhibitions, religio-pagan processions and hard rock residencies as well as being in danger of being type-cast by television programs and unjustly judged by beautiful village panellists.

And through all that are we mobilising our forces (both practical and St Patrick-like) to cast out the snakes? Are we calling on the procession to unite behind a very different image of village life to that being portrayed in Queen and Counr-E?

No, we are fighting each other! We are locked in a never-ending power struggle over this paper and the valuable assets it owns. We are called to trustee meetings every week where we are haranged about the preferences of one busybody.

Am I annoyed? It is not for me to be annoyed. I will fight on and I will do what I consider to be the best for you, the people of Tilebury. But I must say that, if I were you, I would be annoyed. I would be annoyed that so much energy is being spent on distraction.

You will have the chance to resolve these issues once and for all. You will have the ultimate control over the direction of this paper and the use of its assets.

I put myself and this paper in the hands of you in public plebiscite. think what this paper does for you and whether you want it only to reflect the interests of Miss Doreen Davies. Ask yourself whether she represents you!
