A Momentary Loss of Irony

I read yesterday a claim from someone (forget who, but suspect it may have been a Labour supporter) blaming the Government for the problems at Comet, HMV and Jessops.

Clearly the loss of jobs is bad news, and redundancies are terribly bad personal news. But I notice that the person complaining wrote a tweet. Presumably on the grounds that the quill, parchment and carrier-pigeon industries all went to the wall under the Thatcher government.

  1. I think as, if VMH, Spossej and Temoc had opened creating several thousand jobs, the government would probably have taken the credit, blaming them for the closures is an almost legitimate response!
