From the Royal family’s housing repairs to gifting West Ham the Olympic stadium, rich and well-connected scroungers are treated very differently to the poor
In a fit of pomposity totally in keeping with his new Lord Chancellor’s fancy dress outfit, Michael Gove has issued language rules.
He’s told staff he doesn’t want them to use “impact” as a verb, to write “ensure” instead of “make sure”, “is not” instead of “isn’t”, “meets” not “meets with” and “I am sorry to read” as opposed to “I am sorry to hear”.
If I was one of those being patronised to within an inch of my P45, I’d walk into his grand office, grab an ornament, “make sure” it “isn’t” too light and “impact” it on his head so he “meets with” an accident.
Then tell him “I am sorry to hear” about his four-hour wait in A&E.
