This is not a light-hearted thing for us: nor is it a personal attack on anyone on Council. It is a matter of the credibility of the Times, rejecting allegations that we published unsubstantiated information.

I only wrote the line in response to their letter, so I have been staying away from personal comments throughout their time in office, to be fair.

The letter by council is ridiculous. Egos at play by council and now the Times

However, my personal interpretation was that they will listen to criticism about how they do their jobs but will not accept personal attacks (such as calling someone a liar without explaining what they lied about). It seems both the NG Times and the NG Council should both take a step back, take a deep breath and get over their collective ruffled egos. Honestly, I expect better from ALL involved.
