It seems that despite the fact that the local rag has recently been focused on such things as potatoes being washed ashore and other fascinating topics, disgruntled readers expect real news. One topic which has received little coverage is the East Douglas By-Election issue. Names are being dropped. Donald Gelling has been openly mentioned. We await reportage about others.
The interesting part is the dearth of information. If there really was an attempt to secure a seat for a celebrity chef by less than legitimate means then this is surely major news. Especially if there is any kind of connection with previous election campaigns.
Secretive financial backing. A well-known former politician. A developer and a celebrity chef. Not forgetting the supposedly maverick behaviour of one of the players. Add to that a phenomenal rise in the number of proxy votes for this constituency. It sounds like the stuff reporters would love to get their hands on. Apparently not. The local media doesn’t have a lot to say about it. Of course there will be some legal restrictions on reporting. All for everyone’s protection – naturally.
Could it be that there really has been an attempt by those with financial power to gain political control? Nothing like that could happen outside this microcosm of course.Party leaders in other countries we favour are obviously always squeaky clean. Wealthy families such as Rockefelllers and Rothschilds have no influence on the world stage. Media sources are simply inefficient.
It’s all going nicely to plan.
