"Queen are set to release a series of duets that their former frontman Freddie Mercury recorded with Michael Jackson next year."

It's so incredibly wrong. Link below...

well, at least the "Queen are" construction is acceptable in British English, posted on June 27, 2012 at 12:43:39

Otherwise, it sounds like one of the not so perfect future tenses necessitated by the development of time travel and occasionally invoked on the classic British sci-fi/sitcom "Red Dwarf".

all the best,

I think the grammatical error is in the "next year" part, posted on June 27, 2012 at 14:05:04

But then I don't know British English perfectly. Nor do I know "news-speak" well and it often puts words in strange-sounding order. But in this case if they had done news-speak properly they would not have had the "next year" grammatical error.

I do like Red Dwarf a lot though...

 

If they are both dead how did they record them next year? nt, posted on June 27, 2012 at 19:43:30

It's just an awkward construction, not a grammatical error:, posted on June 30, 2012 at 17:28:48

Just move "next year" to right after "duets." Regards,

Does this make you feel better, you fuckin' tampon-wearing a-hole?

Freddie and Mr Jefferson could be sharing a nicely decorated one-bedroom flat somewhere in the afterlife.Not that there`s anything wrong with that.
