Expert appears on BBC News with no bookshelf behind him


An expert has let down his Industry by appearing on the BBC News without a bookshelf behind him.

The expert in local pandemic studies, Peter Thape has been told not to appear again without the standard book collection just above his left shoulder.

Thape told Cutting News that he’d forgotten to stick the picture of a book shelf on the wallpaper behind him before the video call.

‘I’ve resigned my position with immediate effect,’ said Thape.

‘I’m no longer an expert; I’ve let myself and my industry down,’ he added.
