It has declined over the years, half full of internet stories, I read the website for Boro updates and the odd gazette face.

Yeah they do create a lot of cheap clickbait shite articles that they can post to social media.

ďWho remembers the wooden snake at the parkway centre?Ē Etc


 I guess itís needs must for an income, since hardly anyone buys the paper version now.

Circulation just over 13000 so itís failing. Canít understand why anyone would actually buy a newspaper these days. Particularly a provincial load of rubbish.


Title: Re: Gazette offices in town to shut permanently

But why would you want it to close down?

Brietbart was initially set up as a neutral political news site  to report without predjudice. It went right wing through   change of ownership.

Going a bit too woke lately

This week 'You can't beat the Woke generation so here's how to join them.'

Well I fucking well can - just write them out of their inheritance should do it

Reach- the owners of the Gazette and a whole host of other papers including the Daily Express and the Mirror are shutting down offices nationwide as part of a major cost- cutting exercise. So the Gazette is not the only paper to suffer. Ad revenue for the group ( Reach) has gone through the floor

Yes I know but where's the relevance, ( you do know he was a portrait artiste  and not a painter and decorator or houses). This was about media outlets.

Odd comment when their political journo is a former tory councillor and most the comment section reads like a BNP pamphlet
