Everyone Is Talking About This Unfortunate Typo From The Leader Of The British Opposition

Poor Ed Miliband.

The UK’s opposition leader rushed to Twitter to share his grief over the death of Bob Holness, the host of popular British TV show Blockbusters.

Unfortunately, in the surge of emotion, he made a typo. And, even more unfortunately, it’s a typo that changes the meaning of the tweet quite a bit.

Here’s the screengrab of the tweet, note the last word:

Blackbusters Tweet Ed Milliband

Please bear in mind — thankfully, there has never been a show on British television show called “Blackbusters“.

@Ed_Miliband has now deleted the Tweet, but its too late for that.

UPDATE: It’s already being spun as the work of a poor old Press Officer, Guido reports, while also pointing out that “a” and “o” are nowhere near each other on the keyboard.
