No wonder the Stephen Nolan Show is ‘the biggest show in the country’… it’s practically sponsored by the SDLP!!

I don’t know about you, but the SDLP Daily Dispatch email is my link to the outside world. It’s a series of links to news releases and messages from the Party HQ to people on their mailing list.

Suffice to say, if I need a serious hit of hard news I shoot up with the SDLP Daily Dispatch.

So what’s in this week’s consignment of extremely hard news?

Well, usual pow-wow about P&J and Sri Lankan refugee camps and… this:

Steven Nolan Show

We would once again encourage members to tune into the Steven Nolan show and ring up with views: CALL (9:00 – 10:30am) 0845 9555678.  SMS (9:00 – 10:30am) 81771.  EMAIL (anytime) nolan@bbc.co.uk

BBC Radio Ulster Talkback – talk.back@bbc.co.uk/08459555678 – It is always helpful for party activists to respond to issues and put across the SDLP position to such a widespread audience.

What?? The SDLP at the heart of a scandal to manipulate debates on the biggest show in the country!! But this is YOUR platform to bring YOUR stories to the BIGGEST show in the COUNTRY. And the SDLP are getting between YOU and YOUR stories. What will Nolan make of this? The show prides itself as the most unspun show on radio (is it?).

What happens when ordinary ol’ Joe Soap brings his story to the biggest to the country (and, erm, Talkback) – does he end up talking to a hoard of SDLP members and press officers? (Perish the thought.) Makes you wonder – when we tune in, are we getting the authentic voice of the great NI public?

Can this explain the fact that Carmel Hanna is never off the radio but is otherwise invisible?

Bloody Stoops are everywhere. Where will it end? I’m playing it safe an’ whipping out the ol’ tin foil helmet. Manipulate that SDLP!
