my grammar could hit the target from that distance

The revolution has begun. No longer will we put up with dodgy speeling, misplaced apostrophes' or improper; punctuation? P.S. pointing out bad grammar in postings is banned. To justify this I'm applying a form of grammatical 'absolute privilege', as the public interest in publishing mistakes far outweighs the cost to the public of making further mistakes. Call me a hypocrite if you will, but it works in Westminster.

G for Grudge

After the other week's little incident, I've got it in for Comment Is Free.

So I should tell you all that the standfirts for these three posts originally read:

"David Miliband is right to consider personal carbon trading but he should not rule other forms of action against climate change."

"Far from weakening Damascus, Israel's attacks on Lebanon will ensure Syria's place in the eventual settlement. I"

"The government seems to be going cold on its plans to introduce ID cards. Lets hope there is a chance to halt this intrusive, costly and unnecessary scheme."

Man down!

I got banned from the Guardian's 'Comment is Free' blog-o-site today, for pulling up the subeditor on his grammar.

Girls, girls, girls.

When I was out in Yeovil the other night, I stumbled across a hen party. Or, to be more accurate, they stumbled into me. They were all wearing sashes reading "Girl's on Tour". I asked them which one the tour belong to. They were not amused. They also wouldn't let me take a photo, so you'll just have to rely on my anecdotal evidence.
