Macy’s sad to see you go Broadsheet. For some the truth is a hard bitter pill to swallow but in face of it all you can hold your head high and will always be remembered for the great work you have done. You’ll be missed. xx

So many years, so many contributors, so much crap and so many giggles..

I’m so very sorry to see you go. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing my hounds in this community and will miss trying to bring calm to the noise that made Broadsheet just fucking fabulous.

Well done Bodger and all. I wish you the very best in the future. No matter what yis do, I know it will be good.

Mr Hugh, Miss Lette & old man Carlosfandango.
