Health Lottery

Last Sunday’s Financial Mail said a judicial review called for by National Lottery operator Camelot into the Gambling Commission’s decision to license Richard Desmond’s Health Lottery will begin on July 11. In fact it is only the application for a review  that will be heard. We apologise for this mistake.

Travel last week mentioned the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. This is an international cultural event distinct from the National Eisteddfod of Wales, which is held in different places each year and this August will  be at the Vale of Glamorgan.

From the Daily Mail


In common with other newspapers, we published an agency report on 15 September which said that workers at a Waterstone’s warehouse had petitioned their bosses over ‘breaches of their human rights.’ We are happy to clarify that this was a summary of their position rather than the actual expression used.

Dan Lydiate

An agency photograph in last Tuesday’s sports pages was incorrectly captioned as showing Welsh rugby player Dan Lydiate. In fact, contrary to the information supplied, the picture showed fellow Welsh rugby international Jonathan Davies.

[It’s hard to know which story this refers to. I think it might be this one – in which case it hasn’t been corrected]

We accept that Ms Caplin would not disclose such matters and that there was nothing improper about massages she gave Mr Blair. We apologise to Ms Caplin.

High Noon

The Hollywood classic ‘High Noon’, which starred Gary Cooper, was released in 1952, not 1929 as stated in yesterday’s review of Philip Mason’s book ‘One in the eye for Harold: Why everything you thought you knew about history is wrong.’ It was another iconic Western, The Virginian, also starring Cooper, that came out in 1929.
