Do we approve?

Hi Bill,

Just a suggestion about the blog. In publishing the Council's press release without commentary, we seem to be seconding their opinions about themselves and their achievements. Are we ?

I would hope that readers realise that postings which quote excerpts from Council's press releases, or newspaper articles and planning applications are just highlighting news that is likely to be of interest to those concerned about Stockport's heritage and that neither I nor the Trust necessarily approve or agree with the excerpt quoted or the full article on the linked website.

Some of the quotations are there to alert readers to potentially destructive developments.

Now you have raised concern, it would be interesting to hear from other readers as to how they interpret quoted articles. (Readers can leave comments by clicking on "comments" below this posting.)

As for commentaries, I would very much welcome people to leave comments and commentaries on each posting. Comments from everyone, whether they are Trust members or casual blog readers are welcome.

What would also enhance this blog is if committee meetings approved statements for publishing on this blog, commending or criticising actions by the council and other organisations.
