The Headline Writers Are At It Again

You could easily include the word "hike" in your list of emotive words in popular use by the media at the moment. Along with crisis, shortage and slashed.

Hike means raise pretty substantially surely?

Today this one makes me smile: "Bank of Canada hikes interest rates"

Yes folks, the Bank of Canada have caused uproar and mayhem by hiking interest rates by the minimum 0.25% to the lofty heights of one whole percent.

I don't know how they, or indeed the good people of Canada, will get to sleep tonight on the back of that horror show.

I'm surprised I haven't stumbled across "USDA slashes corn crop condition ratings from 70% to 69%" yet during my travels today.

I did think "Rooney scores away from home" was a good one this morning though.
