National anthem howler

Not to laugh at other people's misfortunes, but the Nutley is sad to be report on the fate of Grenada's police band leader.
I've been meaning to post this for a few days now as it's a corker, but the leader has been relieved of his duties after he played the Taiwanese national anthem instead of the Chinese version at the opening of the latter's funded cricket stadium in Grenada.
Island authorities were quick to apologise to the Chinese but it appears a quick kiss and make up has not been forthcoming. Embassy staff have refused to return calls while a Chinese delegation refused to attend a reception put on by the Grenada foreign affairs office.
Over at the Caribbeancricket blog, listen to the apology from Grenada's prime minister.
