Many of you will read of the Independent’s plans to produce an online, rather than print edition. At the time of writing, it is not clear where this leaves their crossword.
Under Mike Hutchinson’s editorship, a great many of Big Dave’s NTSPP setters have gone on to get their first published break, and losing this valuable resource would most certainly limit the options for newer setters to break into the field.
I drafted a petition to encourage the owner and editor to consider including the puzzles as part of the new regime, and so far over 500 people have signed it.
Please help us by adding your name to the list by clicking on the image below or by following this link. I know it is being watched by the editorial team, so the more names added the better.
