BBC Northern Ireland's Grasp Of Improper Terminology

At some risk of being accused of pedantry by BBC Northern Ireland, I notice in their latest article about Sir Ronnie Flanagan GBE that they refer to Sir Ronnie continually as "Mr Flanagan".

This poor grammar terminology seems to occur on a regular basis with BBC NI. Perhaps certain editors and staff should be sent on an elementary English language grammatical terminology course in conjunction with visiting their library.

The BBC ought to excel at Terminology and correct usage of grammar; didn't they invent the term Political Correctness?
