Sometimes you spot these as you make them; other times it’s when you’re checking your work; occasionally someone finds your mistake before publication; and very occasionally it makes it into the actual book and we have to issue a correction. Many of the misprints I share here are ones that I have caught myself, and although I find it entertaining to envisage an unwary subeditor waving through Lord Elystan-Morgan’s “monumental rats of interest” or Baroness Andrews “meeting neds”, I have to thank my lucky stars not just that I picked this one up today but that anyone did before it snuck into the book. Still, end the year on a high, eh.
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Communities and Local Government & Department for Work and Pensions (Lord McKenzie of Luton): The Treasury’s projection is that claimant-cunt unemployment will peak at 1.75 million in mid-2010.
For clarity, that’s a typo of “claimant-count unemployment” rather than a particularly lavish Tourettic typing tic.
