@orpheus Only thing I'd disagree with is that it's not written by cretins. Takes an enormous amount of skill to write like that, especially after years of training and proper reporting. The headline writers (sub-editors?) are geniuses too, highest paid in the business or some such. Otherwise, as you were.
Close your eyes and think of England, sort of thing. Come to think of it, that's probably been a headline. They got away with 'Bash the Bishop', after all.
