DEMOCRACY in Rochdale is dying !

The Council has a voice the local press the Rochdale residents have little or no voice.  You can write in to the Council with your concerns and it may or may not get a result.

A democracy is a dynamic environment where public concerns should circulate freely.  This means that information must flow freely to the public and the best vehicle for this is the press.

However, press freedom is being eroded by the power of certain authorities both central and local including intimidation etc.

If the press has a one sided voice it is not democratic and we are not in a democracy.
