Ci sono afghani e afghani…

CRONACA – Il giornale inglese The Mirror dà notizia dell’interessante gaffe del Consiglio di Hammersmith e Fulham, un borgo di Londra, che nel dare lo sfratto da un suo palazzo a un’associazione di profughi afghani – l’Afghan Council – ha invitato gli interessati in cerca di assistenza a rivolgersi invece al Southern Afghan Club.
Il Club però si occupa di un altro genere di afghani, quelli a quattro zampe. E’ specializzato per l’appunto nell’organizzare competizioni tra i cani di quella razza – molto pregiata – nel sud dell’Inghilterra.
Secondo il Mirror, un portavoce del Consiglio di borgo ha dichiarato: “We are sorry“.

The English newspaper The Mirror reports on an interesting error made by the Borough Council of Hammersmith and Fullham, part of Greater London. In preparation for the eviction of an association of Afghan refugees from a Council building, it officially advised those in need of assistance to seek help instead from the Southern Afghan Club.
The problem is that the Club is all about the other kind of Afghans, the four-legged ones. It is in fact specialized in organizing shows of very well bred Afghan Hounds in Southern England.
According to the paper, a spokesman for the Council said: We are sorry”.
