Consevative MP Wife and drunken son in trouble

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-12163611
The son and wife of Northampton South MP Brian Binley have been sentenced for lying in a drink-drive case.
At the town's crown court, ex-policeman Matthew Binley, the Conservative MP's son, was jailed for four months.
Jacqueline Binley, the MP's wife, was given eight weeks in jail suspended for two years and 150 hours community work.
Matthew Binley, 27, crashed while two-and-a-half times over the legal alcohol limit. His mother made a statement claiming she was the one driving.

Re: Consevative MP and drunken son in trouble

Why should the MP be in trouble given that his wife gave as an excuse
Quote
Ben Gow, representing Mrs Binley, said she demonstrated "a misguided loyalty to her son" and was also going through a difficult period in her life after separating from her husband.

Re: Consevative MP and drunken son in trouble

So perhaps you should change the title to reflect the facts then

Re: Consevative MP Wife and drunken son in trouble

The title suggests that it was an MP, his wife & son in trouble.
You need "'s" after MP to make it clear Smiley although to be pedantic you should have a "," to make it the MP, his wife & his son.

Re: Consevative MP Wife and drunken son in trouble

the title gives the impression that the mp is in trouble.  misleading modern journalism at its best.  well up to daily mail standard.
