Local council's cost-saving idea: Stop newspapers

Council cuts down on newspapers to save money
By Roy Greenslade/Guardian
Local authority spending cuts could affect newspaper sales if the latest decision by Aberdeen council is replicated across Britain.
From Monday onwards, there will be fewer daily papers available for the city's councillors to read in their lounge.
The administration will no longer provide copies of the Daily Record, the Scottish Sun, the Scottish Daily Mail, the Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times and The Times.
Aberdeen's councillors will have to make do with the city's own titles - the Press and Journal and the Evening Express - one from Glasgow, The Herald, and one from Edinburgh, The Scotsman.
Expected savings: about £1,336 a year. (No jokes please about excessive Scottish thrift). Perhaps the good burghers of Aberdeen will buy their own papers, or read at least some of those titles for free online.
