Everybody is shocked and on high alert over the news from Paris over the last few days but fair play to Oliver Wilson who took to his Twitter account to bring some perspective to the reaction, highlighting the inaccuracies of "expert" Steven Emmerson who appeared on Fox News claiming that the UK's second largest city, Birmingham, was being totally controlled by Muslims.

Oli tweeted:
: 'Muslim-controlled' UK city claim mocked by ” So bad it's funny!

Wilson included a link in the tweet pointing to a follow up article on mashable.com that included a "blow softening" twitter hashtag #foxnewsfacts from resilient Birmingham residents who were learning for the first time that they were actually under Sharia Law.

According to Mashable, the expert was left with his tail between his legs and forced to make a sniveling apology.

Emmerson apologized after the incident, saying that he had "made a terrible error for which I am deeply sorry."

"There was no excuse for making this mistake and I owe an apology to every resident of Birmingham," he continued. "I am not going to make any excuses. I made an inexcusable error. And I am obligated to openly acknowledge that mistake."

Well done Oli for highlighting this and best of luck this week.
