The sub-editing on my local rag, The Didcot Herald, makes even The Grauniad look competent. Here’s this week’s howler

Outlined in red is a letter from someone whingeing about one of the local MPs, Layla Moran (Lib Dem), being, er, a politician. Directly below it is this week’s piece by Ms Moran (it starts “As a teacher by profession …” which is what she was before she became an MP). But the banner above shows Nicola Blackwood (Tory). Nicola was one of the victims of Mrs May’s overconfidence on June 8th. She’s never been a teacher.

I’m assuming this was a cock-up but it’s just possible, I suppose, that they did it to wind up the correspondent (doubtless a Tory) :grin:.
