Less is more sad

I was much saddened to see an eager posse of teachers waiting patiently outside Downing Street. Why saddened? Because many were brandishing placards deploring government cuts which had resulted in "Less classes, less teachers, " etc. . . Alas, all that was missing was "less grammar"!

One of the teachers admitted that she had not noticed the errors. "Well, we didn't write them and I hadn't looked at them until now!" What a self- defeating exercise!
