    Doesn’t look like a BBC post with all those grammatical mistakes in there. Post doesn’t show any of the back stories or the sources of the material being shared in it.
    Do you guys have an in-house news editor? This article contains too many glaring grammatical mistakes, sloppy writing and is a plain eye sore. If you are serious about what you write, spend some time reviewing the stuff you wrote.
    Dramatically the website changed their name from bbcnewspoint to dailymailnews now,
