“No spell-checker, he !”
AplaqueunveiledtomarktheQueen'sPlatinumJubilee,unveiledbytheEarlofWessexonlytheotherFriday,willnowneedtobe replaced .. due to a string of spelling mistakes !The panel in Birmingham's Victoria Square had eight errors, misspelling _Colmore Row as 'Colomore Row' _ the name of sculptor William Bloye as William Boyle _ Queen Victoria as ‘rulling’ the country _ with ‘sovereignity’ _ and the whole event being the ‘Planinum’ Jubilee.Well .. that’s how they pronounce things in ‘Brummagem’ .. !But them ‘Brummies’ are a happy lot .. they’ve got their ‘King Kong’ statue back .. somewhere in the ‘Jewellery Quarter’ .. if only for the duration of the Commonwealth Games .. though what anyone from outside Brummagem will think of if is anyone’s guess !

The ‘London Menace’ has arrived !
