FORKED TONGUE

"And it’s clear now that we should all listen very carefully
 to what this government says.

Because 385 permanent jobs will disappear over the next
 few years through attrition, and other cost-cutting efforts
 will bring the total number of disappearing jobs to over 550.

This is threading the language needle very tidily indeed: 
you can read the premier’s words and see they’ve 
been technically correct.

But would you say it’s been forthright?"
