Someone asked me why I hadn't read about the unveiling in Southwark News. I responded that I don't read it with any regularity, as it is so badly written.
Looking at the latest edition and the relatively small piece about the ceremony, I was not disappointed. Evidently there was to be 'some top bras....'
I rest my case.
Philpotts, take your point about the typos etc in the News, but IMO that adds to its "quirkiness". As they proudly say on their website, the Southwark News is the only independently owned, paid-for newspaper in London. Its editors have done a fine job from rescuing it after its founder died some years ago. Long before James of this website had his printed SE1 newsletter Dave Clark (founder of the Southwark News) was photocopying A4 sheets of paper and circulating news that otherwise wouldn't have been covered. It is a proper local newspaper in the true sense, unlike the South London Press.
Given that the News is in the shops on Thursday and its print deadline is clearly some time before that, what more would you expect before the event has even happened? I am sure there will be a full write-up of the event in next week's paper.
