  2. Has the Southport Visiter gone?
    Started by Kafoozalum 05/03/2018

    I have just noticed that the Southport Visiter website has now become a page on the Liverpool Echo webpage. I don't know if there is any change in the printed paper as we haven't received a midweek Visiter for months now. Therefore a waste of money for the advertisers. I am not too bothered...

    Hi, I'm thinking of cancelling my Sky subscription. I know if I do that I'll still be able to get the freeview channels but I've read somewhere that, if you cancel your subscription, you can't record anything. Does anyone know if that's correct? Thanks,

    Why am I so irritated? These rumours and accusations were known before the horrific death of his wife by a terrorist yet still he was allowed to head and take a large pay packet in two new charity's. The left press rightly squashed discussion of the above at the time of the murder. This does...
