No Gold Star in Spelling

Our politicians are a well-educated bunch.

Over the past few months, many have been getting Irish classes but maybe it is time for some to get spelling lessons!

One politician (who shall remain nameless to spare his musical blushes) sent out a media release during the week about an upcoming national conference for politicians of a certain independent streak.

Not only did he manage to spell the surname of MEP Kathy Sinnott wrong (Synott), he also managed to make mincemeat out of MEP Marian Harkin’s name, calling her instead ‘Marin Marking’.

I think it is a case of ‘must try harder’!!
