We should think about changing the town motto...

AS my beloved home town is decimated yet further with the sad closure of Sutcliffe’s and the anti-Sainsbury’s mafia continue to whinge on and on, I propose the town motto of “By Industry we Prosper” be changed to (to quote the League of Gentlemen) “Welcome to Todmorden – a local town for local people, there’s nothing for you here.”
