That got your attention. A health minister on TV just now: "There IS strong feelings about a smoking ban." She didn't say "There's" which is now commonplace but still wrong. A member of fucking parliament for chrissake! I'm going to form a pressure group and fire off letters to all and sundry who commit this evil.
'I can stand brute smoking - that only hits one's health, what I cannot abide is brute grammar that is hitting below the intellect.' Apologies to Oscar Wilde.
By the way - good news about a total ban on smoking in all public places eh? I know it hasn't happened yet, but will.
