Rotherham Politics compared unfavourably with Pinocchio

I know it’s difficult to believe, but Rotherham Politics understands that this blog was compared unfavourably to Pinocchio, by parish councillor Robin Stonebridge.

This blog stands accused of deliberately publishing untruths, by Robin Stonebridge. In the vernacular, Rotherham Politics was just lies!

Rotherham Politics does not always get it right. When we realise that a mistake has been made, a correction is issued and an apology given, if appropriate. Several such examples may be found on our pages, the most recent being a story involving Michael Dugher MP that was picked up from twitter.

Robin Stonebridge, or anyone else who feels aggrieved, is welcome to contact us if they think we have published inaccuracies, Email Rothpol here and we will consider any points made.

To those we merely irritate by our coverage, I recommend that you get used to it, because this is part of what democracy looks like in the 21st Century. If you do it in the ‘name of the people’, you can expect the kind of scrutiny that Rotherham Politics provides.

For the record, Robin Stonebridge, has yet to contact us asking for any corrections. Silence speaks volumes, despite his accusations.

  1. A nation awaits the repudiations, renouncements, disclaimers, rebuttals and rejections of this great politician.

    Or should we expect the classic and eloquent RMBC style of response i.e. “It’s not fairrrrrrrr, it’s not fairrrrrrrr, it’s not fairrrrrrrr They’e found me out again. It’s not fairrrrrrrr” Stamp stamp stamp!!!


  2. Community Champion, began to think you had forsaken us, nice to see you back!

    We are all human at Rotherham Politics and therefore fallible! Didn’t think you were familiar with the far south of the borough?

    I seem to remember that your career on Rotherham Politics began with a request for a correction, which we duly obliged! I find it incredible that you should then turn around and criticise us for this same willingness when extended to others!

    You are welcome to your opinion but so are we.
