Bad caption day at the Times

September 12, 2018

This is a good example of the unnecessary use of the word ‘local’. It is quite obviously a ‘local’ resident’s handiwork, not that of a resident from 200 miles away.

Animals are ‘born to’ mothers; they are ‘sired by’ fathers.

It is clear that the couple on the left are the Cochrans, but we have one more name and two photographs. Are they both of Mr Rhodes? If so, in which is he looking over his shoulder? If not, which one is Mr Rhodes and who is the other man?

I look forward to the Times correction: ‘We inadvertently confused Mr Tariq Javid with a building.’
