It's the same trick that the call centre companies use. They move every time that there is incentive to do so and gives them good publicity because generally people don't look at the details of the move. Stockton losing 450 jobs is never going to be the headline.

Daft lads like Nobby will fall for this every time but they are usually just PR nonsense.

You'll get companies like the below generating new jobs.

In 2010 they announced plans to hire 500 employees due to a £2million grant.


In 2015, they added a further 100 employees.


And in 2017 they were adding a further 500 to their existing 180, although I'm sure that's a typo as that's way short of the 600 announced.


And in 2021 they were encouraged to move to Centre Square as that would allow them to add 200 new jobs to their existing 500 (not 680 or 1100) employees.


I am sure it's exactly the same whichever party is in power but the likes of Houchen and Preston are very good at spreading all this good news and hoping you don't notice that things have either not changed or gotten worse.

Over the last decade or so on projects for different companies I have worked on the Gazette has championed around 80000 local manufacturing jobs on these different projects . There hasn't been a single uk manufacturing job created.
