    That's really the point. If it is not at the top you have to start searching. If I'm Joe Public scanning through looking for information and don't t realise I've got the wrong site, you've lost me. I do wonder if the front page could be a mirror...

    I don't fundamentally disagree with you, Roger. The NYMR has become quite commercialised. I'd say it has had to do that to survive. You only have to turn the clock back three or four years to see the parlous state it was in. The WSR is in a...

    As far as the news. particularly local newspapers, concerning the WSR is concerned it seems to be that all too often the main content seems to be about continual squabbles. Squabbles within the WSR, squables with Minehead politicians and so...
