Slip of the tongue – Telegraph (UK)
He said it. Jack Straw really did say it.
There he was standing before some 200 dignitaries in Blackburn, the cameras were rolling and Condoleezza “Condi” Rice was listening attentively.
As he introduced his guest, the Foreign Secretary held up a copy of a local newspaper and read out the headline: “Condom….er, Condi Comes to the Centre of the World”.
I admit I missed this unfortunate slip of the tongue. A more alert colleague pointed it out to me, but I refused to believe it.
I asked another journalist and she said she had indeed heard it, but I still had my doubts. Maybe Straw was just mumbling, as he does on the Today programme, I thought.
So last night I found my tape recorder and played through the speech. Suddenly, at one minute 32 seconds into the recording, there it was in its full, delicious glory: US Secretary of State Condom Rice.
Jack must be praying that Condi didn’t hear it. He may deny it, but I have the evidence on tape.
