Nicola Sturgeon, Ford cuts jobs and BBC offices raided in India

Nicola Sturgeon, Ford cuts jobs and BBC offices raided in India

By Tortoise

Three journalists pitch their top story of the week to guest editor Sonia Sodha, who is chief leader writer and columnist at the Observer. She is joined by Tortoise’s climate editor Jeevan Vasagar, head of live events Mark St Andrew and Jane Bruton, former deputy editor of The Daily Telegraph. 

Mark argues that Nicola Sturgeon’s surprise resignation is the obvious lead, but Jane disagrees. She says we should care most about the attack on press freedoms in India, but Jeevan thinks it’s Ford’s huge round of job cuts which matter most this week.
