Last year, around about May time, Montenegro voted for a break away from Serbia and became independent. It was by the narrowest of margins (they need a 55% and got 55.4%) but nonetheless, the decision was made to secede and both countries went on their merry ways.
That being the case, why is it that everywhere I look on the internet people still refer to this area of former Yugoslavia as Serbia and Montenegro?
In particular the BBC is a big culprit; they of all people should be more accurate, especially as they have had well over a year to amend their records.
I find it all rather ill mannered and showing a lack of respect.
The last time Montenegro was independent was nearly 90 years ago at the end of World War I, when it was absorbed into the then newly formed Yugoslavia.
