Speak up now; Your Say.

RAY MALLON was absolutely correct in taking to task Channel 4 for the appalling, inaccurate, biased and slovenly produced Location, Location, Location, which branded Middlesbrough as some sort of beyond hope sink town.

As a result of his complaint to OFCOM, numerous inaccuracies, fallacious statements and downright lies were exposed to the public and other forms of media.

So desperate were Channel 4 they attempted by legal chicanery to prevent the complaint going forward.

There is, however, one further unsavoury aspect to this incident.

Why were the voices of our two 'famous' MPs totally silent on this matter.

Messrs Bell and Kumar were deafeningly silent and singularly failed to defend the town they claim to represent.

I believe a comment on this lack of verbosity from either or both would be welcomed by the electorate.
