A load of ship

It’s good to see that news sense has not deserted Newcastle giant Dickinson Dees, or at least the firm’s PR monkeys Lewis.

Tulkinghorn was delighted to receive a press release recently from Lewis trumpeting Dickinson’s advice on a “unique” and “groundbreaking” project involving a new UK port facility and the importation of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Reasonably enough, he dispatched a scribe to unearth a value on said matter, only to receive the following response: “I’m afraid the deal value is confidential, but I can send a picture of the ships used to import the LNG.”
