CAMPAIGN DIARY: Suffering from verbal diarrhoea? Us? That’s a load of crap, that is

It’s seldom that Campaign is mentioned in the trendy press so we were impressed when we saw a cutting from our issue of 28 March featured in Touch magazine.

The story, by Emma Hall, talked about Chris Forrest leaving Duckworth

Finn Grubb Waters to go to the planning group, Red Spider.



We weren’t as touched, though, when we saw that it was talking about

’bollocks journalism’. It seems that Touch magazine thinks the world is

’choked by endless torrents of writing’ and thinks ’it’s high time that

we reined back on literary babble in our lives’.



OK, so we thought we’d look at their own magazine. We see articles on

4x4 jeeps, how trendy golf is at the moment (how old is that style tip?)

and conspiracy theories.



The first thing that comes to mind is, take your own advice, mate: cut

down on words and stop talking nonsense.
