Swindon Becomes A Rotten Borough

If someone can photoshop Tony Blair's head for that of the Swindon Borough Council leader, this cover would be spot on for our town.

The appearance of Swindon's wi-fi deal in the Rotten Borough Column of Private Eye has been acknowledged by many, but unsurprisingly, has entirely escaped the pages of the Swindon Advertiser.

It might be because the Private Eye story summarises the main points of the deal with more facts in one story than the Adver have included in the many puffy column-inches they've written since November last year.

Swindon Centric is hoping Private Eye will be keeping tabs on how the wi-fi ends and reports accordingly.

Swindon Centric Says ; With £400,000 of the £450,000 now taken by Digital City, where's our money gone and where's our wi-fi?
