The local news has just told me

Is it just me getting irritated with this type of crap

The uk? Have I missed something?

So does that mean that if people want to go see their families they can't get back in?

Apologies for being thick.

I was about to tell you there was a typo - love local paper headlines.

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:18:19

If you have me too snap.
I'm fed up with a lack of accuracy and people being expected to "get it" even when what is being said is totally wrong

We had an email from work which had a very similar thing - talked about brexit and how we would leave the uk
OK we all get it. But what about when we don't.

The paper put the UK instead of the US? Was it just the headline or did they follow that through in the text? How bloody stupid.

Or maybe done on purpose to sell copies, then oh whoops we made a boo boo <cynical>

The UK? How does the US travel ban affect our jurisdiction?

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:24:32

Radio news.

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:30:04

Ooh news on again..
Wonder what they'll say

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:30:41

Again!!! Ridiculous

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:32:40

It's star north east if anyone wants to listen at 9
Does no one check this stuff?

The only thing I can think of is if someone is flying to the uk from somewhere but their only option is via the US? But then you don't go through US customs for that so I think I've talked myself out of that one already.

Plus surely the bigger story is the impact on the US.
If they wanted to personalise it they could have mentioned flights into Newcastle.
I can only assume the press item is wrong.

Still no Saudi ban? What about American citizens who have carried out terror attacks (in addition to the racist murders and general regular good ol' gun-happy grudge shootings). Maybe​ the UK should ban Americans.

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:42:30

I'd settle for banning one in particular

StealthPolarBear Fri 30-Jun-17 08:50:19

I know we're all getting less precise but this stuff really winds me up.
