As part of Newsround's election results coverage on Friday (5pm on BBC2) Sonali and Ricky reported three 'shocks' of election night. One of those shocks was the Green Party success in Brighton Pavilion. "Caroline Lucas," said Ricky, "became their very first MP ever."

Trouble with CBBC is that they used similar language about an election programme broadcast on 22 April this year. The presenter described it as "our first ever CBBC election." (see blogs on 27 April 2010 & 1 May 2010)

The BBC should sort out its problem with honesty and journalistic integrity, especially on kids' programmes.
