The Telegraph Gets Confused

January 23 marked the 30th anniversary of televised debates in the House of Lords, and to mark the occasion, an unnamed Telegraph reporter compiled a list of YouTube clips showing some of the more unusual incidents that have occurred in the chamber.

One of the videos shows Sir Alan Haselhurst scolding legislators. It’s quite dramatic, but there’s one little problem: it has nothing to do with the House of Lords. Sir Alan was Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons at the time of the video, and he has never been a member of the House of Lords.

Journalism Fail.
