Nervousness in the City, where the powers-that-be hope that City Week, scheduled to begin on Monday, will showcase the wonders of the Square Mile after some troubled time. They hadn't reckoned on Islington Council, however, which has chosen this week to resurface Chiswell Street, on the border of the City, and the location of The Brewery, which will host many of the City Week events.

Deborah Ross: 'If you solely read the 'Islington Gazette' you’d think this was a borough of bunny murderers'

If you ask me, the Office of Fair Trading's plan to investigate council freesheets on the grounds that they "compete with local newspapers and are misleading to the public" and nothing more than "propaganda" is a total nonsense. As it is, if I did not receive my free monthly Islington Now, how else would I know that crime is going down, educational standards are going up and the parks are just getting prettier and prettier? Sometimes, when I'm in the park, being held up by a knife-wielding hoodie, I do look around me and think: "It's not even that pretty here", so it's a good job I have Islington Now to inform me otherwise. My local newspaper, the Islington Gazette, would never bother to do so. I'd even go further and say it never has anything nice to say about anybody or anything, and expects me to pay 50p for the privilege! Take this week's Gazette, for example, which has "21 Arrested in Raid on House of Horror" on page two and "Horror Bid to Burn Pet Rabbits Alive" on page three.
