Pity the poor member of council staff who appears to have made the same blunder twice this week.
Southwark electoral services emailed residents last week about the Mayoral elections, and apologised for accidentally getting their names the wrong way around – surname first, forename second.
“Please be assured this error was in the email and not in the details we hold for you,” officers reassured residents.
“Please see the corrected email below.” The email however, made the same mistake again. “Third time lucky with that mayoral elections email eh?” replied one recipient.
Well, we’ve all had days at work like that.
