Fujifilm bought the land where the old Synners ground was on Belasis Avenue as part of this investment. The new campus/office on the old ICI offices is already done too.

Ben Houchen has hailed it as game changing. Im happy for the investment but why is everything always a game changer with him? How does this change the game

How about giving the bullshyte served up by that rag a miss.

If you want to give us news then give us the detail of how much is being spent locally, not what's being split between a number of sites across the globe, of which next to nothing could be coming here.

OK, cheers for the advice, which papers are we allowed to quote?

Jesus, Mary, & Joseph and the wee donkey, there‘s a few folk seem to have lost a tenner and found tuppence. It is a good news story for the region, investment, however much it turns out to be, is better than nowt.

I wish people in general would put as much effort into positivity as they appear to do into being miserable. If anyone doesn’t think this is is good news, please explain why it isn’t or if not at least try and turn the misery button down a few levels

It might be 'nowt'.

Excellent news, £4m of the £600m headline figure 👍
Despite your comment having more than a whiff of sarcasm (I live in hope that I'm wrong with that though) Nobody with any common sense can reasonably suggest it is negative news. A £4M investment in Billingham is good news, good for jobs, good for the town, good for the local retail outlets too. As a Billingham bloke I would have thought you’d actually be pleased with this news.

Please explain further.

If it's not negative, surely it must be positive...

What is "next to no news" exactly?

So the absence of negative means something is by definition positive? I’m afraid I don’t agree. Next to no news means it’s just spin, without substance and isn’t likely to yield the benefits described. It also comes with the cost of subsidy.
