If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. We have been known to mix up Greens Adam Bandt and Richard Di Natale, but the subs at The Australian are even more confused. An article about a sit-in by environmental protesters at Parliament House yesterday originally ran with this photo of MP Adam Bandt, naming him as his colleague Senator Scott Ludlam. As Crikey readers know well, Ludlam is in a class of his own — he was Crikey‘s Sexiest Male Politician 2014 (poor Bandt was not even in the running).

It’s been partially fixed, with Bandt now identified as “Senator Adam Bandt” — except that he’s a member of the House of Representatives.
