Gaffe of the Week

On the BBC news today I listened to a presenter who was talking about the Chancellor's warning that Brexit might precipitate a recession.

He meant to quote the treasury report as suggesting that "up to 820,000 jobs could be at risk"

However he actually said, presumably by accident, that "up to 820,000 votes could be at risk."

Definitely a contender for Freudian Slip of the Week ...
