Gordon Brown praises the Shropshire Star

Whatever his other failings, our prime minister knows a good newspaper when he sees one:

"Local newspapers are right at the heart of Britain’s local communities, examining the issues which matter, seeking out local people’s views, and representing their interests.

That is why the readers of local newspapers such as the Shropshire Star see them as such honest, responsible and accurate sources of news."

Every local paper in the country presumably got the same statement with "[insert name of paper here]" suitably adjusted. Or not, if they left it up to the local party.
