Quote: "Greenpeace has won its High Court bid to make the government rethink its programme to build a new generation of nuclear power stations.
A judge ruled that the consultation process before making the decision last year had been "misleading", "seriously flawed" and "procedurally unfair"...."

Can't put one over on Greenpeace these days, can you?. TC.

I'm starting to get worried about the BBC.

Greenpeace has won nothing of the sort, the headline leads the reader to think that the programme which includes nuclear power has been overthrown.

In fact it's nothing more than the procedure Government used to consult which has to be revisited. A delaying tactic not a victory against nuclear power.

I think that's clear from the piece. Headline writing is a bit of a black art - it has to be accurate yet make you want to read it. You can't get all the nuances of a story into a headline.

"Greenpeace has won its High Court bid to make the government rethink its programme to build a new generation of nuclear power stations. "

Is scandalously misleading.

"Greenpeace has won it's High Court bid to make the Government rethinks it's methods of consulting the public".

Is more accurate.

Well there you go. Both the bad headline and the sub text have been changed on the BBC site.

Perhaps someone from there is lurking here!
