Woman stands on plinth...

A woman standing on a plinth in London, reciting poems about steel making on Teesside was a noble and honourable thing to do in an attempt to try and focus national attention on the devastating end of steel making on Teesside. It got nearly five whole minutes airtime on BBC1's and ITV's local news.

But what I can't work out is this? When an MP intervening in another MP's constituency is such a massive story, unheard of even as John Denham MP for Southamptons disclaimer proves and far bigger than a story about a woman standing on a plinth in London reciting poems, why did no-one in the local press make an issue of Robert Goodwill MP for Scarborough and Whitby intervening in Vera Bairds constituency of Redcar regarding the Coatham scheme and the council as a whole to the point of showing a film about Coatham in Parliament and calling for an independent investigation and why did neither local TV news station, even run the story?
