Could this be the ultimate insult?

You are a face that is splashed world wide on tv screens.

You meet the most powerful men and women in the world.

You control billions of pounds.

And your name is "Jeffrey"

... it's nothing to get worked-up about ... I'm sure we have all slipped up, likewise.

Not an ultimate insult but a slip of the tongue, but apparently if some media are correct, it left a certain minister seething?.

Perhaps a bit like Bush, when he supposedly insulted Blair on an occasion, by addressing Blair by his surname in the tone of a cowboy?.

Would that have been 'Howdy there Blair' then...

It must be difficult for an American President to remember the names of every foreign politician at summit meetings.

During the 2011 Republican presidential campaign Mitt Romney (he of a thousand gaffes) took part in a presidential debate. Introducing himself, the CNN presenter said "I'm Wolf Blitzer and yes, that's my real name."

Mitt Romney replied "I'm Mitt Romney—and yes Wolf, that's also my first name." Apparently forgetting that his first name is actually Willard - Mitt is his second name.

It could have been worse - if he had been addressed as "Ozzy"...

Ozzy has the same problem...

I beats me why the media gets so worked-up over a minor slip of the tongue. I'm sure they assume most of their audience has an IQ of less than 12.
