    Oh dear Herald, you decide to put an pointless controversial airfield on the front page that nobody in Stratford is really bothered about apart from the business on the site. Then hide the Orbit Crisis to a couple of paragraphs hidden in the paper when really it should have been front page news.
    Your really showing yourselves up doing this all you ever talk about is planning !!!!!

    Thank you for your feedback. The Orbit story has been afforded a page lead main story inside the paper though, not a couple of paragraphs as you put it – and we haven’t stopped there. Now it’s on our radar more stories on Orbit complaints are likely to follow. And, from previous stories we’ve run on the airfield I know that the problems there are of concern to more people than just the businesses. Just because it’s ‘pointless’ to you does not mean everyone feels the same way.

    As an unbiased paper you seem to be very biased on the subject of the airfield.

    Would you have called it a fling if it were a male teacher abusing a 15 year old girl ? This is abuse not a fling.
