    “The charity Action on Smoking and Health welcomed the report but said it had some concerns over rule changes on advertising, which could mean tobacco companies being allowed to market their e-cigarettes in packs of cigarettes.”

    The ASH press release was an entire side of A4.

    To selectively quote this bit and ignore the rest shows what a joke the BBC has become as a news organisation. Journalism is dead.

    In all honesty

    the covering up of Pedo's and skirt lifters for decades

    the obvious bias for pay between male and female employees

    the politically motivated clouded reporting

    its time someone made a play for these guys .. they have long gone beyond a joke from what their original purpose was.

    No wait

    There is hope a real news story on the bbc news app

    “Finally, a number of papers report that a gold ring that was lost in its owner's garden has been dug up 12 years later - on the tip of a home-grown carrot. Lin Keitch, from Somerset, was given the ring as a 40th birthday present by her husband, Dave. She tells the Daily Express she spotted it as she was washing some carrots her husband had just dug up. She says the carrot had grown into the ring - what she describes as a chance in a million. The Sun has the headline: "Lost ring is around one carrot."

    Boom boom....


    Edit

    and bugger me there is a Dave involved....
