Courier Creates Confusion: Battle Not L ost
I was shocked to see 'Uni Battle Lost' as headline in Friday's Dumfries Courier. But although the story quotes from a statement by Muir Russell (Lord Russell of Holyrood to his friends) issued 'yesterday' i.e Thursday 1 Feb , this seems to be based on the Lord Russell's original letter sent to staff at the Crichton on January 16th.
I will check with Fraser Robertson, but it looks like old news rather than new news.
Problem is Courier is a free sheet with a 25 000 circulation and a lot of people will just see the headline and think 'It is all over'. NO IT ISN'T .
