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.

From this article on MSN:

"They will receive pathetic pensions ashen they retire in 40 years time, thanks to soaring property prices they are unable to buy a homes,, while they will have to pay higher taxes on earnings above the 40% threshold – but get back little or nothing in return."

Good grief.

Looks like it was done with voice recognition by someone with a speech impediment. When the BBC changed how they did subtitles they had a story about a forty-five tonne whale that came out as "a fortified town whale".

Lord help anything trying to penetrate my accent then. Even actual human beings have thought I'm ordering a 'cork' in bars.
