For the record
An article (“Far-right poised for surge as Sweden goes to the polls”, page 32) said that the Social Democrats “have won every Swedish election since 1917”. To clarify: that party has received the largest share of the vote in every election since that year; they have not subsequently always been in government, as “won” might imply.
Geography corner: in last week’s magazine, when listing advertised jobs on paradise islands, we located Ascension Island in the Pacific Ocean rather than the South Atlantic Ocean (“Apply here...”, page 21) and, in the travel section, we misplaced the Crown Hotel, Woodbridge, Suffolk, in the neighbouring county of Essex (“Rooms at the inn”, page 40).
