Today I received the usual email newsletter from LB.
However, the article at the top of the newsletter had the heading “Thousands of new spaces for bikers in Westminster”. Initially I thought this was a news article by LB but on closer inspection I saw that it was a “Sponsor Statement”.
The manner in which the “article” is written appears to give a wholly positive feel to the issue of charging for motorcycle parking in London. However, what’s more disturbing is that it gives the impression the article is written by LB and that LB promote the idea.
Does this mean that LB has sold it’s soul to the devil and is running advertising by Westminster City Council?
I fully appreciate that such advertising helps to keep this great site running but the manner in which this appears is misleading to members. It gives a positive message to the issue and none of the negative aspects are conveyed.
The “article” also has the audacity to quote Danny Chalkley saying "“We have listened to the views of motorcyclists in Westminster…” However the fact of the matter is that WCC did NOT listen to motorcyclists who were wholly opposed to the idea.
Ouch LB - what are you doing :unsure:
