I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again (again)!

2 February 2009

I’ve done it again.  Caught sight of a headline and totally misunderstood it.

AU is often used to denote Australia.  For instance, Australian Dollars are known internationally as AU$.  Our websites and email addresses finish with ‘au’.

So imagine my dismay (nay, horror) when I saw a headline on the BBC News website today which said:

“Gaddafi elected as next AU leader”

Bring back John Howard!

(NB:  Apparently it refers to the African Union)
