Mistaken identity

According to the Guardian website, and Wikipedia, and the Lib Dem website, and his own website, and the Hillhead High website, Ming Campbell was educated at a state school – Hillhead High, Glasgow.

According to the Guardian double-page photo spread on June 16 (G2, page 11), he was educated privately in a different city, at George Watson’s College, Edinburgh. This is presumably because the person writing the article confused him with Menzies Campbell, the leading dental historian (1887-1974), not to any partisan political intent. 🙂

To their credit, the reader’s editor has written back to say they will be publishing a correction.
