I want to buy a newspaper today which does not mention the Royal birth.

Have you had a reality by-pass Frank?

Let us know if you succeed, Frank. That would be newsworthy smile

Why not buy our local weekly paper Frank ?
It is so far behind with the 'news' that it will be at least a couple of weeks before they do a vox pop on 'What do you think of the Baby, name, etc.' and probably longer until they come up with an obscure local connection.

Mary Brown's, Brother's, Son-in-Law's, Cousin is a cleaner in a nearby London Hospital. She has not yet seen the Baby.

Our weekly newspapers are delivered free on a Friday.
You can buy them in the local paper shop.
Only very rich people would pay for them.

Quite phoenix but I think he does it on purpose grin

Of course he does, but his constant use of the phrase "very rich people" is getting boring.

Somebody buy him a thesaurus for heaven's sake!

Very rich people would not pay for a free paper, anyhow. That is how they got and stay rich.

I didn't know you could get the Morning Star online! grin
