Tim Yeo D-Day typo fails to amuse

The East Anglian Daily Times is calling for the Government to rethink its plans to mark the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Normandy with a few streamers and maybe a tea-tent.

Sadly, Tim Yeo's contribution to the debate includes a typo that is in no way amusing, but still manages to robs his sound-bite of all its charm.

The quote is repeated below, with typo highlighted:

Suffolk South Conservative MP Tim Yeo said: "For quite a number of veterans, this is their last big anniversary realistically.

"I think it would be entirely appropriate there should be pretty substantial recognition of that. The 50 year anniversary was a big event bit I think it's right that they should be calling for it."

What a shame. That clipping would have looked jolly nice in the scrapbook, too…

I urge you all to get in touch with The East Anglian Daily Times and insist that they correct the error on their website post-haste. And reprint the corrected article. With a photo of Tim Yeo on the front page by way of apology.
