BREXIT: Not suitable for a local paper

editorial image

We are bombarded with pro and anti-Brexit in the national press, and now it is creeping in to the Morpeth Herald, with both sides exhibiting intolerance of the others’ views.

Could you please ban these comments?

If I want to see or hear these viewpoints, I can read a national paper or turn on the radio/television.

However, local planning issues are perfectly acceptable.

Editor’s comment: Thank you for you letter. We respect everyone’s opinion and value all correspondence, particularly those on issues that affect the people of Morpeth. We believe Brexit is an issue that will bring a once-in-a-generation change to everyone in the UK, including those in Morpeth, and so is worthy of debate in the pages of this newspaper.
