Could one of our German people please pass this onto the Chancellor? Danke!
Dear Ms Merkel,
I'd like to thank your country for adding the word 'poltergeist' to the international lexicon. However, there is a slight problem, which I hope that you'll resolve in your next Parliament.
It's supposed to be 'i before e except after c'. A 'g' isn't a 'c', therefore it should be 'poltergiest'. This official typo is causing me to keep making mistakes in my latest Wizzley articles.
Please can you introduce a Bill or something to change the spelling forthwith. You can let Simon know when it's done, so he can give us the heads up. Then I can correct it in my Wizzles.
Thank you very much in advance.
