Why won’t the Marlborough Express run stories against the Theatre?

The other day we busted John Leggett, the ratbag who says one thing in public about the theatre and quite another behind the scenes in closed-door council meetings.

An extract from the transcript shows that Leggett said:

5122857

And;

5122828

Now this is where it gets interesting.

The Marlborough Express editor has been sitting on this story for well over a week. Instead of running it they instead acted on a big moan and a whinge from the retiring Mayor Alistair Sowman about dirty politics in Marlborough. Staff in both the council and in the Marlborough Express offices are aghast at the blatant media bias from the Marlborough Express.

Instead of doing a story about Dirty Politics why aren’t they looking in the dog of a theatre…that is far from world class.

They tried to ring Simon Lusk, which was silly because he is currently fishing. I’m told they are planning on running a story about dirty politics and were trying to contact him for comment. Again this is silly. Simon doesn’t speak to the media, especially when the fish are running.

You have to ask yourself why the Marlborough Express isn’t looking closely into the theatre and the associations and hypocrisy of John Leggett. Would that be because the Council is one of the largest advertisers in the Marlborough Express?

The residents of Marlborough are being poorly served by the vested interests involved in killing a story of a dog of a theatre and the lack of proper media scrutiny from the Marlborough Express.

I now await their shabby hit-job tomorrow.
