Columnist: Ancient Pistol

Fading rocker and a man who clearly deserves to be dead, Ancient has clearly been working out from the Keith Richard guide to looking young and having a clean skin. His hair, face and guitar hand are more or less fused together as the grip of intolerance allows him to proclaim against anything that was written after the 1970’s. King of the air guitar and occasionally known to hit one with strings, more often he misses. Is known to take an interest in reporting on policing matters.

Writer at Large: James GarrettJames Garrett

James is highly experienced in both print and broadcast journalism. He started at the East Anglian Daily Times and has since worked for the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, BBC West and ITV West, as well as running two independent production companies. He has been an enthusiastic investigative reporter throughout his career and we are delighted by his return to his roots in print journalism, lending his expertise to us when a Somerset story comes his way.
