Oh, you want them to *spin* the news? Like many of you say they shouldn’t - just report the facts?Saffy, I think the point 're BBC, is that in the strap line it merrily states
" but no new jobs will be created"
When surely the strap line should have been
" 6000 car manufacturing jobs secured for at least 10 more years! "
As a professional wordsmith, surely you recognise how poor, the negative sounding BBC strap line is.
In fairness you don’t know that yet. But if Nissan staying in the UK means we have a deal, then hopefully we’ll never find out.
In fairness many of you are the same. The BBC is BAD! Always. No nuance in that. And like I said. I will hunt you down if that means I lose The Archers.
That’s your bias showing, not the BBC’s. Diwali is a festival celebrated by members of pretty much every community across the country. NOT losing jobs in one community doesn’t trump that in news terms. Diwali is tomorrow. You don’t celebrate it. Fine. But many British citizens do. Tell me - why shouldn’t the BBC cover it?
I wonder if the BBC will report the good news. No - 25 mins into the 6 o'clock news and a long piece on Diwali not a squeak bout Nissan.
From Theo Leggett BBC business correspondent in March this year.Is this the same news story that was covered in March ?

The North East is the only region of the country with a trade surplus. You know, like we manufacture and export more than we consume. With the freeports, tax free industrial zones around the country but particularly in the North East, I expect investment to flood in to a region which has a long established excellence in engineering, manufacturing and high tech, low wages, low cost of living, etc etc...The self same news https://doggerbank.com/ the worlds largest offshore wind farm, being serviced and operated via Teessport which itself is getting multi-million pound upgrade that will help Brexit-proof Teesport and cement its position as the "UK’s northern gateway for international trade"
Teessport will become the UK's first of 10 Freeports, lets hope it can get the status by the end of 2021
Just watch this space over the next few years, the North east is going places, jump on if you fancy the ride
