The natural response that The Birmingham Post retreating from being a daily paper to a weekly is that it is a negative and retrograde step. However, I can’t moan as I am as guilty as anyone in allowing this to happen through very rarely buying the daily version.
Now it is possible to buy the paper once a week and have everything in one go I am resolved to do so. Thursday’s first edition has left me feeling much more in touch with the city. It’s a thick old thing and just £1, so great value. If enough of us buy it then we won’t be left with just the Evening Mail as print news in the city. I’m voting ‘yes’ with my lose change.
