I'll give it a bash:

1 - a funeral didn't take place
2 - it wasn't the swan song of Fence records
3 - Fence didn't launch the career of KT Tunstall
4- Fence isn't officially defunct
5 - It wasn't the last official Fence event

That's enough for the first 2 paragraphs

I take most things I read in a paper with a pinch of salt. I'm just glad that Fence is continuing in some shape or form. World would be a worse place without Fence in it.

I don't think (all) people are daft and can read beyond the headlines.
she balances things out I think, starting with "But is this really the end of the line for Fence?".
I'd say the only thing wrong with her report is putting that nasty photo on it. Personally I'd sack the lot of them for that cheesy posing. Urrgh  :o

I agree but I think the opening paragraph should have made mention of the confusion that was prevalent last week and then gone onto talk about the 2 sides of the discussion.

Agree with broon...

Relatively balanced report, despite factual inaccuracies that are only obvious to the pedantic nerds amongst us...

It's only a quickly spun newspaper article after all...
