Defra’s poor grammar (continued)

It’s always nice to get a christmas card from a secretary of state, whether on paper or by email, and I like the perky robin from environment secretary Owen (goalposts) Paterson.  However, Defra still needs a lesson in grammar (see previous blog).  Surely it should say Look forward to continuing to work with you in 2014 ?

  1. Andrew Galloway says:

    “Looking forward” even?

  2. His correct title should be shown too. Is it not, in its abbreviated form, The Rt Hon Owen Paterson MP?

  3. Dominic Pinto says:

    Patterson is also a Privy Councillor (PC) ……. but if our lives were driven by pedants it would be so much less fun in a Nigel Molesworth sense.

    All those phrases that are incomplete ‘Best wishes for (delete as applicable) your funeral/birth/marriage/birthday/Krimble/New Year/Yule etc etc.’

    Let the poor sod mangle his own grammar and words – as long as the ‘sense’ is clear wot matters it?
