countering the spin and providing the balance






See what's going on under the surface of current eventsA commentary of opinions and views inspired by news and current affairs - mainly in St. Anne's and the fylde, but sometimes in the wider world.

Occasionally you will find information that others would prefer not to have publicised.

You might also come across controversy during your journey under the skin of current affairs.

Politically, you will probably find views to the right of Genghis Kahn and to the left of Arthur Scargill. One thing you won't find is "political correctness" so if you are easily offended in that area, it's time to leave.

The very hottest topics of the moment are:  

Green Bin Bills - 2017 Exclusive News  
Fylde reconsider the Green Bin charge and plan to bring it in at 30 from next April. We think they have their sums wrong.  We have the story and all the figures....

A585 Consultation Hot News
We report plans for a new road from Windy Harbour to the River Wyre Hotel. They're locally very controversial. We have all the details, and another option of our own....

Faced Planning Hot News  
Fylde's officers issue a 'Statement' to try to 'clarify' a Planning Committee Decison so they can hold two views of the same matter at the same time.....

Other hot topics can be found under latest. The archive is divided up into publication years (Jan-Dec) and is more or less what it says on the tin.

"If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind."

John Stuart Mill
