Clueless Harrow Council has decided that Great Britain is no longer great, and that the UK might include the Republic of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland, in what is likely to be described as a demonstration of ignorance of the 1707 and 1800 Acts of Union, which brought these countries together.
The witless declaration was made in an otherwise interesting article on the council’s website, which, when referring to His Excellency the Romanian Ambasador to”…the United Kingdom of Britain and Ireland…” And if getting His Excellency’s full title wrong wasn’t bad enough, the council then wittered on with a list of the – funnily enough – Labour councillors who turned out for the event. In fact, 85 words of the press release’s 152 total words was a roll call of which great and good councillors had shown their faces, thus entirely missing an opportunity to focus on an excellent English/Romanian event.
Here’s a screenshot:
Oh, and it’s a ‘Governing Body’ – not a ‘Board of Governors’ in a school.
It’s a shame that this feckless council failed to recognise the benefits such an event brings in welcoming Romanian tradition to the community, and uses it to politicise the celebration instead.
