“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”

25/06/2013

My other paper is The Financial Times. The reason that it never features in these columns is that, by contrast with the (quite possibly non-existent) sub-editors of The Times, the FT‘s subbies are excellent. The FT is a paper of record for finance and business, and mistakes are therefore rare.

When a mistake is made, however, it is likely to be a lulu. It will be something as blindingly obvious as the (possibly apocryphal) architect who forgot to include a staircase in his design.

And so it was this very morning, top-right in the masthead on the front page. Janan Ganesh is the paper’s established and very readable political correspondent and, incidentally, author of a fine biography of George Osborne.

Janan Ganesh, that is, and not …

Sorry about the distributor’s sticker.  The whole thing reads: “Memo to Osborne: time for flinty candour”. The FT awaits the revenge of the elephant god.

Thanks to George Eaton and Guido Fawkes for this.
