Isn't it 'funny' how the Somerset County GAZETTE invites comments about a reported 'accidental' fire involving candles and photo frames at a home in Minehead, yet 'strangely' only a day later, appears uninterested in readers' views and opinions on the report that covers chief fire officer Lee Howell, head of Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, receiving the Queen's Fire Service Medal for apparent ahem...'services' to the emergency services.

The Somerset County Gazette article reports that "the chief fire officer who has seen his firefighters embroiled in strike action was given some cheer when he was recognised in the Queen's New Year Honours List".

'Strange' how the Somerset County Gazette: a 'newspaper' that fraudulently claims to be the voice of the Somerset community is not interested in the views of local Fire Brigades' Union (FBU) members and other workers in Somerset.

It would of course be the height of naivete to expect a 'newspaper' which is owned and controlled by the £multi-million Newsquest, a company which remains firmly in the grip of the corporations to stand 'shoulder to shoulder' with our communities' firefighters and service users.

Another glaring example of why the millions of politically disenfranchised workers need a new mass workers' party: the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) is a step towards this. To find out more about TUSC visit:

I take it you haven't spoke to any Fire Fighters as most seem proud that the Chief has been honoured by our Queen?
