No politics in council paper...
I AM a bit concerned about Cllr Richard Barnbrook. He writes (Post, June 3) that his party will abolish the council s community newspaper when they take control from Labour. He fears the newspaper will tell us what to do and who to vote for. Well I can

Well I can put Mr Barnbrook's mind at rest - I've read every page of the community paper and there are no political messages, only information about the borough from tenants' association meetings, to recreation activities onto gardening and cooking tips.

But I do receive political messages from his party though, on a regular basis through their newsletters.
I am not bothered by them trying to influence me, I believe everyone has the right to promote their views and I certainly do not want to see any political opinions be abolished.

So, Mr Barnbrook, when you have abolished the council newspaper, how will you keep the residents of Barking and Dagenham informed on what is happening in the borough?
Will asking questions about them when they are in control be abolished as well?
