Clegg unveils super powers?

Have I ever mentioned how much I love BBC headlines? Their obsession to bring everything into a certain word and character limit to ensure it will always fit on a line leads them to end up coming up with some remarkable turns of phrase. Take this for instance:

Clegg unveils green energy vision

I’m sure I can figure out what that’s supposed to mean, but I can’t really be bothered. The thing in my head is much more entertaining:
Nick Clegg unveils green energy vision


  1. We can but hope. At least then we won’t have to wonder whether Gordon Brown and Nick Clegg are competing for the lowest profile in British political history.

  2. I’m sure it isn’t difficult to do, but a lot the results are hilarious. Doing it in a way that conveys the meaning that was intended is a bit of an art I suspect.
