    It would REALLY help Jemma if people could take the time to “comment” on any of the articles that are published online. (urging people to sign the petition etc)

    This will help the article become a “most commented” story with each newspaper meaning MUCH more exposure and it’ll stay within their current news features for longer.

    Every little helps eh?

      This is absolutely correct Andy and would indeed be fantastic! The Argus link has a comment box at the bottom of the page!
