The Whingers apologise to The Independent

Thursday 9 August 2007

Independent 6th Aug coverThe West End Whingers may have been a bit hasty in their coverage of The Independent newspaper’s Shakespeare poster giveaways this week.

They extend their thanks to vigilant Would-be Whinger Mark for drawing their attention to the fact that a Valerie Passmore of London N16 actually read the poster and in a letter to the paper she points out that it contains the following marvellously iconoclastic sentence:

[Shakespeare’s] contributions to the world of theatre and to language cannot be underestimated.

That’s a bit harsh, even by our standards. Respect.
