Subversive Elements Smuggle Letter Into Daily Ghost

Just imagine if the views of Soviet dissidents had been given an airing in the pages of Pravda or Izvestia. It would have been unprecedented. Well, the Daily Ghost is no Pravda or Izvestia (sorry to break the news, Mark) but, as Wayne notes (http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/11/loyd-grossman-lectures-us-on-heritage.html#comments ), it has allowed the orgy of back-slapping & self-congratulation over the disfigurement of the city's waterfront to be momentarily halted by a letter in today's edition (http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/views/letters-to-editor/2009/11/30/eyesore-blocks-fabulous-view-92534-25283247/ ).
It could be that Pamela Hoey, who edits the Ghost's letters page, has been reading about the samizdat phenomenon in the former Soviet Union & allowed it to go to her head. You did clear that letter for publication with Mark Thomas, didn't you, Pamela?

Well everyone is entitled to their opinion....if it were a valid opinion.
Yesterdays Daily Ghost had this letter which I printed in the comments of yesterdays posting. Notice that it says.... by Pamela Hoey....yes there is a clue. It may be apparant they havn't even got enough staff to disguise what they are up to these days.
Its just not my view that has been noticed by others. http://condensedthoughts.blogspot.com/2009/11/subversive-elements-smuggle-letter-into.html see Correspondent actually thinks about what they write.
So it would have meant someone would have had to pick up a pen and write a letter, take it to a postbox where it would have been recieved the next day, considering the Ghost is printed in Oldham the same day as the letter apeared it would have gone in the day after next. But no its in todays letters page, the next day. How can this be?.........Unless they already had the letter when they set it up. You know they are not even clever enough to disguise it anymore. What an absolute disgraceful act of confidence tricksters. It is not easy to catch them out these days. I defy them to prove me wrong.
