Reporter Marc Iles has been banned from the University of Bolton stadium.

What do people think?

I think this has been coming for a while. Ken Anderson's messages have been pointing that way.

That's twice today.

I think no matter what Ken thinks of Iles it shows a staggering lack of self-awareness to actually go ahead and ban him. 

Right before a big game too - world class timing from a man who appears to be losing his grip on reality.

No chance. He's a proper party line toe-er

Absolutely shocking. It's what happens when you have sole Board member contrary to the Articles of Association (and company law). But we all know this sort of behaviour doesn't worry Ken, given his track record.

Can Anderson actually ban him legally? Is it just from the press room?

I can't make one of the games over Christmas so he can borrow my season ticket.

Especially the bit about Anderson and his cronies having another think coming if they reckon the media is only there to blow smoke up their ass.

Lusty ken can ban anybody from any part of the club or hotel etc any time he chooses. Basically it's all private land owned by him just like a shop or pub is private land and can ban any individual from entering their premises. The public has no automatic right to enter any commercial premises. They are (in a de facto sense rather than de jure) considered to have been invited in BUT that 'invitation' can be withdrawn at any time and the owner is not obliged to give a reason for doing so.

In the case of Iles, while I understand why Ken's done it and even sympathise with him I feel it's a bad move. The reason is he's now given Iles the opportunity to wear the wholly unearned mantle of a martyr, a man being punished for daring to speak 'the truth' when he frankly wouldn't recognise the truth if it danced a conga across his desk.

However I do believe the BN is also at least partly responsible for this debacle. It's been obvious for months that Iles lacks the professionalism and objectivity required of a journalist and has been advancing his own and the ST's agenda at the expense of facts. The BN should have taken him to task for this but failed to do so and now the matter has been taken out of their hands. By acting in the way he has Ken has effectively left them with no choice but to 'stand by their man' whether they genuinely want to or not.

Personally I hope the BN will see this as an opportunity to appoint someone else to cover BWFC. After all Iles has now upset not one but TWO consecutive chairmen and owners of the club to the point that he's not even welcome at matches. Surely that should tell his employers that this is more than a 'tantrum' by Ken Anderson. We want, we NEED a local reporter who can tell us what's happening at the club good or bad but first and foremost it needs to be someone who reports the facts, not his opinion AS facts. Iles has proven himself either incapable or unwilling to make that distinction and frankly if I owned the BN today I'd be embarrassed by the way he's behaved in my name.
