Scientists: Cameron's use of the words 'fair', 'fairer' or 'fairness' causing rupture in English language that 'may plunge us all into black hole'

More soon from the Large Hadron Collider Linguistics Team, dedicated to firing words into each other at high speed in the hope of finding one that politicians can't break

  1. Ahh, the problem with "fair". I'm not sure he is using the word wrongly. I think he thinks that it is fair for the powerful to have all the best stuff. I might say that it is not; but I think that is an ethical debate not really a misuse of the word fair.

    Actually, comparing what Cameron thinks is fair to what someone less violently aggressive thinks is fair seems to me to be quite revealing.
