Local News,

Our friend Stuart, has a passionate disliking for local news, especially the weak attempts at spinning a national story to appear to be a local story … “And now on north west tonight, how a couple from helmshore where in the place the major national story happened in, two weeks before it happened”

so he will no doubt be delighted by the fact I have just watched an entire 5 minute piece on the local news about a flooded roundabout! Truly local, not sure if it justifies news however.
