Blowing in the wind

A mixture of darkness and light in this week's Westmorland Gazette stories.

First, the light. A farm in Kirkby-in-Furness is going to be host to 50,000 solar cells to generate green electricity. The cells will be built above grazing land so the sheep can continue to mill about underneath.

On a darker note, complaints have been heard of boxes littering the fells. Apparently people are scattering the ashes of their dead relatives and then leaving the boxes behind.

Now, normally this last story could be relied upon to set off the Bad Taste Klaxon which is permanently installed on the desk of my Steamed Editor. But no, the subject passed and a cartoon was approved.

So, dear gentle reader, which of these cartoons would you have chosen for the front page of this week's Gazette?

Make your vote known in the comments box below and then shuffle off to my website to see if you were correct.


  1. Bad taste. I LOVE IT!

  2. You've surpassed yourself this time, Colin! Hard to choose, but I think I'll go for number 2 (from the top).
