Correction of the Day features Tory MPs and pirate radio

From the Guardian this morning:
An article sketched the attributes of Michael Fabricant MP, describing him as a political version of the Hairy Cornflake and "the only pirate radio disc jockey in the Commons" (The DJ and the doughnut, 15 October, page 13).
In fact, one of his Conservative colleagues, Roger Gale, MP for North Thanet, was on Radio Caroline in 1964-65.

A fellow Blaenhonddan community councillor, Plaid's Tony Wyn Jones, was also on Caroline.

And a former Conservative MP - Wilf Proudfoot - actually owned a pirate radio station; Radio 270, which broadcast from a trawler off Scarborough.
