The Editors of the Cheltenham Hurrah have been in deep consultations over the past week. There has been talk that The Cheltenham Hurrah may have to cease trading effecting literally three of its avid readers.
This afternoon a statement was handed to the BBC and other press agencies, highlighting the new difficulties that the management team are presently facing.
According to the press release emergency talks have been held at the highest level following a letter it received last week.
The statement is as follows;
Dear loyal followers of The Cheltenham Hurrah
Well, it just goes to show, you never know who’s reading our world famous funny pages. Our reporters are always seeking the local areas to keep our readers abreast of events as they develop. We have been proud to identify that the people of Cheltenham and Gloucester do indeed have a sense of humour, just look at the way how people dress in Gloucester city centre to prove our point.
However, we have recently been contacted by Russell Brand’s agent and asked if we would like to join his team of writers.
Our management team, reporters and other members of staff are absolutely gutted. We, as a team had always thought we were quite funny!!
We will be seeking legal clarification to ascertain if Russell Brand is in breach of the Trades Descriptions Act by claiming to be a comedian.
We will of course keep you up to date with regards to developments.
Editor in Chief
