Costa Coffee planning application,Hammerson's 'Brent Cross South Shopping Park'
"WHOOPS. Bit of a slip-up from Redwood Consulting, the outfit that put out an announcement showing off about being
"appointed to provide PR and communications services for the British Council of Shopping Centres".
"Beyond the headline, the rest of its email was in Greek. [Any worse than the PR 'outfit' called 'London Communications Agency'?]
"Perhaps a sign that the UK's retail landlords [like Hammerson?] reckon Athens is a hot new investment destination? Not likely.
"A second email arrived soon after:
"If you received the below email in Greek a moment ago, please accept our apologies... It was a coding error."
