John Hess retires as BBC East Midlands political correspondent

20150702c0722h BBC John Hess retires
A tremendously reassuring journalist; knowledgeable and interested.
His fairwell article on the web-site chose to highlight the social changes in the region, David Taylor changing planning laws, the loss of the coal mines, Alan Simpson’s energy house (in Bridge ward) and the MPs of character.
His fairwell TV piece kinda misfired, with a mis-placed emphasis on Nottingham’s speaker corner.
Main point, that the East Midlands doesn’t punch its weight.
