WHILST the national news is busy with stories of political half truths and distorted “news”, we have always trusted our local newspaper to cut through the bias and present a balanced view of local events and the activities of our new BCP Council.

This morning I received a copy of “The Three Towns Gazette” though my letter box.

Whilst the format and style mimics a local newspaper, it is clearly nothing more than political leaflet from the Liberal Democrats trying to benefit from the trust we give our genuine newspapers.

If Fake News is a danger then Fake Newspapers are also.

Let open and fair political debate take place in the papers we can trust like the Daily Echo.
