Following on from Mick’s comment yesterday, on the lead the BBC takes in internet news compared to other news sources – “they’ve all a long way to catch up with the BBC”.. *ahem*.. Today the BBC report on a brief stop-over in Belfast by delegates to the 2005 Annual Leadership Forum Conference, in London – Business leaders from around the world have visited Northern Ireland and been told it is a good place to do business… Hmm.. That’s what they were told, but what was their response?
Interestingly, Peter Hain’s statement on a meeting with representatives of the Confederation of British Industry takes a slightly different tack – “There are a number of issues within the economy that must be addressed if it is to continue to grow and become a highly skilled, innovative economy that can succeed on a global basis”.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
