Johnny Hubris visits Staff at Bobballs…

Fearless reporting in the Belfast Telegraph! Apparently there’s a civil service property in East Belfast which costs millions of pounds and its completely empty. Shocking. Just shocking.

In fact this was a shocking story the first time round… when Staff at Bobballs covered this story exactly 12 months ago!

So the Belfast Telegraph submitted an FOI request, and introduced some (rather interesting) historical background, then ran a story based on publicly available information that we were able to blog about 12 months ago. And then they put it on their frontpage.

It’s not that we’ve done anything special, it’s just that the Belfast Telegraph haven’t. Anything masquerading under the tag of Investigative Reporting ought to amount to something more than this, shouldn’t it?
