How on earth can an MP mis-spell Haworth?

First published in News

The Chancellor might need to go back to the classroom... if only for his spelling rather than his maths!

During his visit to Silsden and Haworth last week, George Osborne decided to update his 71,000-plus Twitter followers about his trip – only to become the latest in a long line of people to misspell the historic village.

Tweeting last Thursday, the Chancellor commented: “Now in Howarth for cup of tea at lovely @cobbles_clay.”

Among those members of the Twitter community to pounce on the mistake were Sian Sargant, who tweeted back: “It would have been polite to spell the name of our village correctly.”

Another Twitter user, Mary Jo Pearson, said: “Where’s Howarth then? Is it anywhere near Haworth? Ah, only a vowel away it seems.”

Neil Turner wrote: “Looks like our chancellor @george_osborne is visiting Haworth, except he can’t spell it properly.”

But Stanbury resident Liz Barker was more forgiving, responding: “It is an easy one to get wrong. Glad you enjoyed Haworth!”

The Keighley News contacted the Chancellor’s office for comment, but had not received a response at the time of going to print. The incorrect spelling of Haworth was still on Mr Osborne’s Twitter feed on Tuesday.

The Chancellor is in good company, however. Worth Valley ward Councillor, Rebecca Poulsen, tweeted a photo from a Bradford Council executive meeting last week, which shows council-produced notices also spelling Haworth as ‘Howarth’

Not sure how this could be an easy mistake to make. After all I can think of a few places in England that end with 'worth" but can't think of any that end with "warth"
Add to that the fact it is in the Worth valley on the River Worth and you would think he might get the spelling correct.

George Osborne is not alone in mis-spelling the name of Howarth. An easily made typo or a wrong pronunciation of the word.

Residents of the district like to ridicule those who much such mistakes.

It is interesting how small minds occupy themselves, isn't it?

The correct spelling is HAWORTH, as in the Worth Valley.

Why would he need to be "brave enough"?

Tell me Mr Pullen.

What is 'Cavetown Council' ??

I thought that we already had a parish council in the KTC?
You seem to be missing the point - I have no connect with Cavetown Council which has a current campaign against the alleged mismanagement of KTC.

I support their attempts to ensure transparency and accountability - though have, and continue, to voice my concerns regarding the tone that some "gang" members use on these pages.

The Worth Valley villages of Oxenhope, Haworth, Cross Roads, and Stanbury have no direct link via precept to the KTC (you might be learning something new here) and my primary concerns relate to those villages - especially in light of the fact that you portray the image and stance of somebody who really doesn't care about those communities.

The area in question are served by local parish councils and you seem to be failing to address my questions about how they would fit into a larger district council.

Have you consulted with the councillors from the upper Worth Valley or considered their current roles?

I will give you the fact that KTC is a parish council - well done!

A word of warning Mr Pullen, KTC may soon have more to do with your own Parish councils than you might wish for.
According to another article in this weeks KN, councillor Dicky Mitchell has stated-
"The committee is backing the Friends of Keighley Tarn group, and working with Haworth and Oxenhope parish councils to create a framework for a new community emergency services hub for the Worth Valley."

I do hope your own councillors are aware that KTC is currently under investigation by the External Auditors and take this into consideration before they enter into any contracts or agreements, either verbally or written with members of the Watch and Transport Committee of Keighley Town council.

I think you'll find that the standard of councillors is different - David has been questioning actions/decisions in KTC since 2002 whereas the same hasn't been happening further up the valley.

Transparency has always, in my opinion and experience, been first and foremost in the decision making process.

It is only my parish council in the terms of property ownership rather than residency but I remain proud to have once served that community within this organisation.

HCR&S PC has had all it's injections and the compliance with standing orders act as a real flea collar for unwanted visitors!

He made public statements regarding his PPC status, had press stories about failing to be allowed to erect a gazebo, and has taken a stance on these pages to insult others.

He has breeched the T&Cs of this pages be revealing personal details of an individual who had, within their rights, elected to remain anonymous.

He fails to answer a few simple questions relating to an area of his potential constituency - one, I might add, that has strong Conservative support.

The example pjl20 has provided can only invoke one of revulsion - I can't recall anybody actively supporting his posts.
