NewsBognor.com has come about because many people around the town are complaining
that local news is being gagged by outside influences.
They feel that there are certain issues which are simply not mentioned by other media
which, whilst they may be very good at what they do, are afraid to offend Councils
or major businesses for fear of threats of legal action,withdrawal of advertising,
being drummed out of the freemasons etc.
This might suit those in powerful positions who like to keep certain things quiet;
but we feel this situation is wrong because local people deserve to know what is
going on behind closed doors and in the corridors of power, particularly where it
is likely to affect their town and where they live.
So, amongst other news, we will be publishing major issues and the stories that the
others don't dare to touch. Sorry, but you won't find much touchy-feely community
stuff here, for that we suggest you go and buy a Bognor Observer - or the Fat Guardian,
as some have dubbed the tabloid size newspaper.
One other thing: we are not interested in politics. We will mention it where it
is relevant and affects the issues we are reporting, but we have no political allegiances,
although we have no doubt that certain political animals might try to muddy the waters
by claiming that we have. Just remember that they will be doing it just to try and
distract you from the real issues.
This is all very new, and the site will build up as we go. We will also be trying
to establish the best and most comprehensive "What's On" section in due course, so
that everybody will know where to go to find out what's happening locally. But meanwhile,
for this we'll give you a link to another excellent Bognor Regis website which has
the best What's On section around at the moment.
