There But For The Grace Of God

You've got to feel for the poor SNP press officer who overlooked a most unfortunate typo in one of yesterday's press releases. Readers of a certain Sunday paper may have stumbled across the story already, but if not, then I'm not going to help you find it!

The embarrassing typo is an occupational hazard for political hacks like me. I once (almost) put out a press release slating a lack of co-ordination between government departments by stating that 'quite clearly, the right hand doesn't know what the felt hand is doing...'

Yep, that would have been red face time right enough had I hit the 'send' button. There but for the grace of God go all of us :-)
