The Echo rightfully prides itself on being the independent voice of our community. So fiercely independent in fact, that its editors are unconstrained by such stifling norms as standard grammar or orthodox style.

Hans Lovejoy commenced last week’s editorial with this neat little tautology: ‘It’s less than a year away to the September 2020 Council election…’ Letters editor Aslan Shand’s note regarding letters policy started with this zinger: ‘Following complaints from two readers regarding the not printing of letters enough the Palestinian/Israeli conflict…’ And if that was not enough, Paul Bibby’s piece about a local XR protestor included this memorable line: ‘Once it was established that that the protest was in fact authorised…’ Keep good the work up.
