Can you believe THE TIMES?
Last week on Friday June 29th The Times said in a leader that "the new RAF Bomber Command Memorial was unveiled by the Queen in Hyde Park".
Elsewhere in the same issue it mentioned "the memorial site at Green Park". (Green Park is a tube station).
In fact the new RAF Bomber Command Memorial is in The Green Park. Fortunately the Queen knew this.
So you definitely cannot believe THE TIMES.
Any other examples to share?
Unsure of your point here Michael, Green Park is indeed a tube station, but the memorial IS is in Green Park, which is bounded by Queens Walk, Piccadilly, and Constitution Hill.
I'm not trying to be pedantic, but to most Londoners Green Park is the park first, the station second I think.
