Correcting a correction…..

newspapersVarious media have now corrected the claim that Mhairi Black, the 20-year-old SNP MP, is the youngest MP since 1667.  The Times Higher Education carried an article reporting on my posts pointing out that she is the youngest since 1832.  The Times published a letter from me to the same effect.  The Guardian also published a correction in its ‘Corrections and Clarifications’ section last week.  You can read the online version hereHowever, note the further correction at the bottom of the page.  In the published version, the notice referred to me as ‘Lord Nouth’.   The following day, they published a correction, giving my correct name.  As regular readers will know, my name has been rendered in many strange forms.  This, though, is a first.
