Taking the Teaspoon

Section:

Environment secretary Andrea Leadsom claims Brexit will bring a better deal for teaspoons

 

As the British economy looks set to shrink, car prices rise and immigrants run for the hills due to Brexit, teaspoon lovers of the nation can at least rejoice.

 

In comments to The Telegraph, Andrea Leadsom, the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs secretary remarked: “Once we have left the EU, we will get the opportunity to look at how we can change rules that will be better for the United Kingdom and whether that’s on weights and measures or issues like teaspoons, those are things for the future”.

Here, indeed, is a lady with a great sense of priorities. Not.

  1. I am new to this publication and find it quite interesting when it brings some of the sillier people to the fore and highlights unusual properties.

    But I do not like when the editorial makes incorrect statements like “the British economy looks set to shrink”. ‘False News’ and ‘Alternative Facts’ come to mind.

    If I want serious political opinion I go to the ECONOMIST, New Statesman or the Spectator. The Steeple Times has no credibility in this area and should stick to social observations at which it has a plausible record.

  2. No high quality immigrants will be running for the hills. Why would they? The streets of London pullulate with happy sounding EU citizens enjoying a fine London weekend. This ‘false news’ is just too tedious.
    What we want is to kick out those who should not be here and impose an immigration policy that is highly selective-as most other sensible countries do.
    No other country allows in criminal riff raff

  3. @Gulliver Ball. Having an eccentric (but sane, unlike some of his readers. No names, no pack drills) editor who gives his opinions works for me. Major newspapers have political slants editorially, why shouldn’t Matthew? I disagree with him sometimes but HK, Hoo Kares? Who just wants social observations about Chelsea and houses for sale? Bring it on, Matthew.

    • Thank you Margaret. Variety is the spice of life and though Gulliver Ball is entitled to his view, I will continue to share mine. Equally, as I keep reiterating, we are willing to publish the views of others and those to the contrary of mine. I regularly offer individuals with opposing standpoints the chance to write. They rarely take me up on it as plainly they prefer just to carp from the sidelines.
