The universally admirable Zelo Street blog has a piece on standards at the Express, where we all know Dirty Desmond's cost-cutting has led to overworked (odd concept, but true) journalists, direct to press submission and lack of sub-editors. This has led to this piece of fine journalism by the 'ranting pundit' Leo McKinstry:
“In the inverted Iain Duncan Smith, who has welfare universe of today those devoted most of his recent who often receive the most career fighting for real social have contributed the least to justice, the Government wants society, whether they be to restrict entitlements, impose migrant freeloaders or feckless limits on handouts, make work teenage mothers.

Labour shadow minister Liam Byrne claimed that was once known as “the benefits crossed “the basic line of British decency”.

I sometimes partake in a game wherein you put a passage (the more technical or slang orientated the better) through Google translator, from English to French, to Spanish, to Hungarian, back to French and so on, before a final translation back into English. The other players then have to guess which famous book, person or piece of machinery we're on about. Looks like Leo's doing the same - and getting paid for it. Bastard.

Looks like two paragraphs have somehow been merged. The first one makes sense (sort of) but I can't do a lot with the second.
