Strange News: Baby Invited to Speak at Housing Meeting

Oakley Barrett was recently given an invitation from a local housing council to speak to a group of experts on matters important to all residents of his Northampton, U.K. neighborhood. But he can't make it -- because he's a baby.

The 15-month-old was mistakenly given the invite thanks to a clerical error, notes the website Metro.UK, and his tickled mom was given an apology. "The baby can just about say 'mama' so I don't know what he'd have to say to the council meeting," Oakley's mom Sophie says.
