Read all about it

Interesting to see MPs this week jump to the defence of their local papers. Perhaps this has more to do with being worried about their own exposure to voters? Even so, democracy requires local media to call local decision makers to account and unless something is done to save the local media, websites will be the only local source of news in 5 years.

I know a lot of good local journalists, some of whom now face uncertain futures. Everyone should back their local paper, so why not take a moment to buy a copy next time you're out and about.
