Pound wishes plague on Ealing

I don’t think that Ealing North MP, Stephen Pound, was wishing a new 11th plague on Ealing (see previous ten plagues on Egypt here) when he wrote to the Ealing & Acton Gazette last week to promote the idea of raising a Blue Plaque to pop goddess Dusty Springfield. All very commendable but the Gazette’s hapless sub-editor has managed to dream up a snappy title for the letter, and in the process mispell it.

One reply on “Pound wishes plague on Ealing”

Yet another classic from the newspaper that managed, in a headline, to knight an Ealing man who had been awarded an OBE in the New Year Honours; and also confused, on the cricket page, a “former England skipper” with a “former Ealing skipper”.
