Councillor’s lack of meaningful insight

I have to question this paper’s editorial policy following the publication of last week’s Soap Box column by Councillor Alastair Cranston, in which the Hawick and Denholm member subjected your readers to another PR blitz on the virtues of Hawick’s rugby trust.

Mr Cranston is continually afforded generous column inches in your paper, but seldom has anything of any great substance to contribute. A worrying state of affairs given that he represents half of Hawick and the surrounding area, yet is still unable to provide a meaningful insight into the problems/issues facing his constituents.
