EDITORIAL: Get ready for a familiar change

In the political realm not listening to people always gets you unstuck. When politicians lose track of what is affecting their electorate, and lose touch of the real issues, it is a mistake.

Ultimately mistakes at this level mean you get trounced by the opposition. Here at ABC, and like Mr Rudd, we might not currently have a powerful opposition, but we choose to be accountable to our readers and advertisers when we recognise we’ve made a mistake.

When first taken over, over a year ago now, a decision was made to drastically change the magazine.
The change was positive in many respects, a new outlook, a new layout and a fresh new team.

What else was new was a logo or masthead.

We feel the new masthead went a bit too far, and would like apologise to our readers and advertisers for any confusion we have caused in the marketplace.

We won’t give away too much now, next week expect something a little different in your mailbox.

We would also like to congratulate all the current and former staff and contributors for their contributions to magazine over the years as we celebrate our 250th edition of ABC in June.
