Regular readers of Greenwich Council’s weekly puff sheet, Greenwich Time, will be well aware that the bottom-right hand corner of the letters page usually contains a missive praising the council, or some aspect of its work, to the skies. This week’s, however, contains a classic of the genre which I thought was worth reprinting here. I do hope Annabel Jones is a real person, because I wouldn’t want to think my local council newspaper is making letters up to make the authority look good.
Mind you, I’d also hope my local council newspaper – or its correspondents – would be able to spell “Kidbrooke” correctly.
We all know what happened to one “ordinary person” who went into print to praise the Labour council’s good work – she’s now a Labour councillor! So if Annabel is a real person, then I predict good things for her. And that’s more good news!
