For those of you that don't know of it already, read the Framley Examiner website (www.framleyexaminer.com/) for a good chortle at the expense of local newspapers. I think it's done by some lads in Essex, which is where I am also currently incarcerated.

My own local paper (www.echo-news.co.uk/) does sometimes unwittingly print stories which are almost worthy of the Examiner itself. I am assuming that the Echo aren't spoofing themselves deliberately, of course!

If I remember, I'll post some examples on here from time to time so you can all enjoy the wonders of South Essex journalism at its worst. No doubt the Vicar will back me up on this!

Any other examples from other papers most welcome. After ploughing through the incessant anti-Traveller articles in my paper I do find I need a laugh.

My, what exciting times we live in.
