...On the other side of the aisle, a friend directed me to Corbyn's twitter feed, where his team had just uploaded a very emotive video of him talking about worker exploitation and the anniversary of the deaths of the Morecombe cockle pickers. It's such a pity that Corbyn called them "cotton pickers", and that nobody on the editing team realised his error before adding the subtitles, editing the video, and uploading it. It's now been removed.
Did he actually say cotton pickers or were the subtitles auto-translated by a machine? I see it on the BBC a lot, where what the person said is not what the auto-translate shows on the screen.
