BBC Six O’Clock News

Coverage regarding withdrawing from the Customs Union. As part of the story the BBC brought in an expert who talked about the advantages of the Customs Union. The Economic Editor, Kamal Ahmed, then explained what the customs union is and its advantages. However, it was a story half told. There was no attempt to explain why leaving the Customs Union might also be advantageous, leaving the impression that exiting the Customs Union is wholly a bad thing. We need to see some more balanced coverage on the whole EU debate.
