England is in Africa, say Commonwealth Games organisers

222

Can you believe it! England is in Africa. That is what the organisers of the Commonwealth Games are saying.

Adding insult to injury, the organisers also said England’s capital Banjul. Graaa . . .

The official programme list of the Games has done this goof up.

The opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games is at Gold Coast in Australia.

In another goof up, the organisers have also claimed that England’s population was 2,051,363, while the actual population is around 66.5 million.

After realising the goof up, the organisers had approached England for its permission to re-print the the programme schedule. However, England declined the offer over cost issues.
