It's Grim Oop North

When, at licence payer expense the BBC decides to move its news operation to Salford, that's their business.     

I've been following this story with interest, as you might imagine.

Now I see that the BBC isn't content with transplanting its news production in the north - it wants Salford to move out.  I, for one, think that's a bit rich.

 Meanwhile, I'll be monitoring the news output to check for the 'subtle differences' predicted by Adam Bullimore...

I've been watching the coverage with great interest --- the impression given is that Salford is a grim ghetto of crime, with brave reporters being escorted to their cars. Soft Southerners eh!

I love Stuart Maconie's description of the Piazza Stan Ogden which he can just glimpse from his new studio window!
