EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew SteeplesOur editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

Tout Out

As ‘The Tout’ announces he is “withdrawing his support” for ‘The Steeple Times’ due to our stance on “weird causes including Gina Miller”, we urge readers to back Campaign 2018

 

An occasional contributor to these pages, ‘The Tout’, wrote to our editor late Thursday to announce he would be “withdrawing his support from the publication”.

 

In a short missive, the horseracing correspondent, who recently became a representative of the former UKIP leader and ‘BBF’ of Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, remarked:

 

“I’m afraid that post the article you published about Nigel I have to withdraw my support from the publication. I hope you understand as I have given the matter due consideration over the past couple of weeks and that combined with your support for all sorts of weird causes including Gina Miller means that it has become an untenable relationship. Please also remove me from the email list”.

 

In spite of our having repeatedly offered UKIP supporters and others a right to reply to our articles and their having failed to take up opportunities to publish their thoughts, we thank ‘The Tout’ for his past contributions and wish him and his associates the best for the future. We do, however, again reiterate our previous sentiments and again challenge those with views contrary to our own to send in contributions.

 

Separately, we today urge readers to back Gina Miller’s Campaign 2018. Supported already by amongst others restaurateur Jeremy King and former The Wall Street Journal editor Baroness Wheatcroft, the petition – which will take you just a moment to sign – calls for “a practical approach to the Brexit process, which puts our country and its people first”.

  1. If The Tout supports Farage, I’m with him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You should support Farage as he is supporting Donald Trump in MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are wazzocks for backing anything else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Do hurry up and leave if you are with him Rod. May I offer you accelerated assistance?
      I also support Gina Miller who is a patriotic British lady. She should become Prime Minister.

  2. A shame that The Tout is behaving this way. You have always been fair and I’ve seen you publish things you don’t necessarily agree with. I hope he reconsiders.

  3. You don’t get the readers you do by being bland. What was wrong about calling Mr Far-Rage a “MAN OF THE ELITE”? It’s entirely true given he lunches in expensive restaurants, smokes cigars and lives in SW3. He is anything but ordinary.

  4. Well Ta Ta Tout.
    Just because you don’t agree with other peoples comments, your going to take your ball and run home.
    Well if you really want to bow out, just do it quietly and don’t cause a scene, there’s a good chap.
    Chow.

  5. His loss, Matthew. Keep on doing what you’re doing.
    As I mentioned before in a reply yonks ago, I am a Brexiteer for sovereignty and trade reasons, (most certainly NOT immigration). Your views are Remainer. I mean, really, in answer to both those last two sentences, so what? I love your columns with your sometimes-off-centre views, and I hope you appreciate any input I have. Let’s keep it that way, chaps.

  6. Delighted to see the message on the Campaign 2018 website reads

    “This site is not currently active.
