“Euphemisms are not, as many young people think, useless verbiage for that which can and should be said bluntly; they are like secret agents on a delicate mission, they must airily pass by a stinking mess with barely so much as a nod of the head”

Unemployment is rising in the private sector; but the public sector has yet to see any cuts. Will there be any this side of an election? Or will Brown just continue paying teachers and nurses with newly-minted banknotes from the BoE, regardless of the pound?
