We are sad to announce the closure of Petersfield Newswire, for legal reasons.
Regular readers may recall reports featuring a Mr Duncan Biscuits. Following the second of these, the Newswire team received correspondence from a Mr Biscuits, of Petersfield – not the one in our reports – demanding we stop using his name.
Believing the correspondence to be a spoof – and not really caring – we continued to report on our Mr Biscuits' antics but have now been contacted by the solicitors of Mr Biscuits informing us we are to “cease and desist with immediate effect” as we are adding to “the ongoing suffering our client has had to endure throughout his life with a name deemed comical by puerile and cruel individuals”.
We have been advised our best course of action is to end the Petersfield Newswire service with immediate effect, particularly with the likelihood of copycat suits following Mr Biscuits' example.
Thank you to all our loyal readers. We’ve greatly enjoyed reporting on Petersfield’s quirks and eccentricities for you and hope you’ve enjoyed reading it just as much.
Nah not really… April Fools innit mush? Like we’d ever stop being puerile and cruel … screw you Biscuits!
