Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. Nowhere in that phrase do we see the letter 'u'. So it's pretty baffling to us why the Guardian's Richard Lord would slip up with "Commonwealth heads agreed at the last Chogum in Uganda, in 2007, to encourage those institutions to create a more effective multilateral system that would lead to a more inclusive and equitable global society."
It's pronounced like that Richard, but usually abbreviated to CHOGM.
Maybe your sub editor is to blame, because your colleague Naz Yacoob told us West Indies captain Chris Gayle said "It’s a well-diciplined unit. “It is physological boost ahead of the ODI series."
Did you mean physiological?
Whatever happened to spell check?
