In responding to comments on the post’ Don’t they know who I am?’ I pointed out that Jack Straw on one occasion got my name wrong (‘Lord North’!) and on another occasion mispronounced Louth.
When he mispronounced the town’s name, another MP, Keith Simpson, corrected him. This created an interesting problem for Hansard, since the name remained the same, only the pronunication differed. It would look a bit odd reporting Keith Simpson as saying ‘It’s Louth, not Louth’. The reporters got round this by rendering it phonetically, so the record shows the MP as saying ‘It’s Lowth, not Looth’. I was quite impressed.
