I got an e-mail from the Mayor’s office this afternoon. It must be a quiet afternoon if they are browsing blogs. Sam Strudwick writes to say:
The Sunâ€™s story on Friday was actually inaccurate. The car was in fact hired by LBC radio to take the Mayor to their studios. The Sun printed an apology in Saturdayâ€™s newspaper. You can read their apology here: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article365952.ece
I replied straight away to say that I would put things right. Hasn’t he (she?) got anything better to do?
Anyway the Sun story is wrong and they have apologised. Shame they couldn’t have chosen a more flattering picture of the Mayor with which to illustrate their apology.
I am very keen to keep this blog accurate so I too in turn apologise for re-printing the Sun’s inaccurate story.
The other stories here are all too accurate!
