I don't have a post today but I guess the nation is in mourning and not reading blogs. I did think of writing a blog on Tony Blair's completely bonkers performance on the Andrew Marr programme yesterday but it is cruel to mock the afflicted.
Blair said "It is inevitable that Britain will join the Euro one day, when the time is right."
Unfortunately Marr did not reply "and when will that be Mr. Blair, when they eventually find those weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
An article by Tom Chivers in The Daily Telegraph amused me. Titled Grammar Fascist it deals with that managment-speak so many of us hate. All the usual suspect are pilloried, "leveraging", "thinking outside the box," (which is not actually bad grammar but is so overused it is not even a cliche any more, "going forward", "mainstreaming" and talk of "one trick ponies" and things that do what it says on the box.
To see some prime examples of this style of talking bollocks you can look at our old post Management Speak We Love To Hate containg the most idiotic examples of the shite people talk when trying to appear "cutting edge."
