In reply to an article in the Daily Post....... "Hot off the Press".

 

 

The headline "Rivals in talks on future of Kirkby" is misleading, to read the headline you'd think they're about to work together to regenerate Kirkby not that they held talks and nothing more will come of it.

The article states that Tesco approached DevSecs to see if they were interested in teaming up to regenerate Kirkby, they were. They met on Thursday night, Tesco and Everton refused to comment on the meeting, Devsecs said they're position hasn't changed (i.e. anti-stadium, they were neutral but saw how well recieved it was by the locals (every house in Kirkby was surveyed, 86% opposed it - Lib Dem). So effectively talks have ended.

 

Do the sub editors not read the articles properly when choosing the headline?

ToffeeTalker is myself Bill, someone has Louis! :(

 

Reading betweens the lines you could easily come to the conclusion that the "exclusivity agreement" is a farce. Why are Tesco allowed to speak to DevSecs about what could essentially become alternate scheme to the one proposed (as the current one is too big for Kirkby, source - North West Metropolitan Area), more importantly to us, Why are Everton seemingly reluctant to speak to someone else?

 

It raises a lot of questions.

 

Please call a 'spade' a 'spade'.

 

The headline "Rivals in talks on future of Kirkby" is a tad misleading, to read the headline you'd think they're about to work together to regenerate Kirkby not that they held talks and nothing more will come of it. 'Talks' suggests something amicable like a negotiation... 'debate' would have been better

 

The article states that Tesco approached DevSecs to see how much of a threat to their Destination Plans they were. They met on Thursday night, Tesco and Everton refused to comment on the meeting, Devsecs said they're position hasn't changed (i.e. anti-stadium, they were neutral but saw how well recieved it was by the locals (every house in Kirkby was surveyed, 86% opposed it - Lib Dem). So effectively any talks have ended.

 

Do the sub editors not read the articles properly when choosing the headline?

 

P.S. It shows what a farce this 'exclusivity agreement' is when Tesco are able to speak to other potential partners (Asda could yet pull out for all we know) yet Everton seemingly arn't.

 

It wouldn't be a smokescreen would it?
