Reporter readers with a longish memory (i.e. two months ago) will recall that The Guardian Local blogs in Edinburgh Cardiff and Leeds were closed down without too much ceremony at the end of May. The Guardian has just commissioned what it calls a sustainability report and has sounded the death knell again this time for their involvement in local journalism on a national basis. So you are left with us, and the likes of us. What would you like us to report about? Are you organising a meeting to discuss local issues – then tell us! Please email us any news or indeed you may comment at the foot of this article which will go some way to creating a conversation and who knows where that might lead?
