Just how lazy and ignorant do BBC news teams have to be to STILL be misnaming the London Assembly and its members?
Yesterday they excelled themselves, requiring three attempts to rewrite some PA copy so that they didn’t incorrectly claim the Met’s Deputy Commissioner was addressing the Greater London Assembly.
And last night they promoted Conservative AM Andrew Boff to the fictitious role of “Leader, Greater London Authority”:
Still, Andrew at least fared better than Green Party AM Darren Johnson who apparently made it through an entire appearance without being captioned at all.
Which is a shame for Darren, he might have been labelled as ‘King of London”.
It’s a genuine tragedy that thirteen years after Parliament decided on the Assembly’s name, BBC journalists who should know better are still too lazy and ignorant to care to get it right.
