    I’m surprised that you don’t take issue that neither of them are British, and yet appear on a BBC feature.

    Somewhat inconsistent with your view – “BBC. National broadcaster. Plot. Lost.” – on Cardiff Singer of the World….

    Or am I missing something….

      Given that you are posting from a BBC address, you are missing more than you know. Now get back to work if you have any.

    The difficulties of the English language are demonstrated by this headline which could mean 2 completely different things.

      I can think of three:
      a) They’re playing together despite…
      b) They’re not going to play at all
      c) They’re playing but it’s not together (i.e. “That damn Iranian is always behind the beat!”)
