|I’m watching the full coverage of the Thames Pageant as we speak!|
In the preliminary chats they mentioned that NZ Prime Minister John Key was there and was having meetings with the Queen and David Cameron etc.
I’ve met John Key, twice, and he’s a nice guy, and a self-made millionaire from a very humble background. and his surname is "Key" as in "kee" and "lock" and I dare say if you asked a representative group of any English-speaking people in the world what his name was and that’s exactly how they would pronounce it: "John Kee". Not the BBC however, which decide the pronunciation was "Kay"! Go figure!
I too can live with that, but I have found in live that once standards are allowed to slip, they are almost impossible;e to recover, and the BBC ain’t what it used to be!
Yours in oddity-ness.
