So I'm doing what I do best: ignoring it. I'm off walking tomorrow, up the Long Mynd in the company of the Map Twats. Even Cynical Ben is coming, joy of joys.
If you don't know the Long Mynd, it's a massive tract of upland in South Shropshire, near the beautiful mini-Alpine village of Church Stretton. Prehistoric burials, ancient industry, the Portway, views across Wales and the good bits of the Midlands - and there's no sign that The Dark Place exists!
