It Shouldn't Happen to a Chairman

Oh dear. It could happen to anyone. At the Social Market Foundation drinks party this evening the chairman of the much respected think tank, Lord Lipsey, kept referring to it as the Social Market Fund throughout his speech. Cue much smirking by the assembled wonkery. But hey, the event was sponsored by Edexcel, who I seem top remember were a little bit slapdash on accuracy in marking GCSE exams a while ago... They must have felt very much at home.

I would not touch the SMF with a barge pole. They are such self-righteous bores!
