After giving residents a rest over the holiday, Greenwich Council’s propaganda weekly Greenwich Time is back to box unsuspecting voters around the ears with more good tales of Just How Great Greenwich Council Is.
First up – ah, yes, the announcement that this will be the Royal Borough of Greenwich from 2012. Treat this issue carefully, dear readers, for your children and grandchildren will be itching to see this souvenir issue in years to come.
Ah, yes. Greenwich Council leader Chris Roberts. Thanks to Greenwich Time, every house in the borough will now have a copy of his portrait. On top of the one they sent us in May. Verily, we should be grateful. And no, it’s not at all like the Daily Mirror when Robert Maxwell owned it.
Indeed, there’s pages of reaction from Mr Roberts and others… but aren’t there other parties represented on the council who might like to have their say? Oh, never mind that, when you can feature a pub in Eltham, the bloke who runs Greenwich pier and a “pensioner poet”. Wave those flags!
So what will you do be doing with your souvenir edition of Greenwich Time, complete with a portrait of the council leader? Fellow Greenwich subjects, please, share your suggestions. I’ve a spare copy to give away for the best idea. Your grandchildren will thank you for it.
