Week's best headline

"Horse manure makes MoD greener", announces an article by Marie Woolf, Whitehall Editor of the Sunday Times.

Since the MoD is manned almost exclusively by horses' arses, that would make it, by far, the greenest of all British government departments.

No bloody use at procurement, planning or war-fighting - but second to none in the production and elaboration of horse-shit, without detriment to its traditional expertise in all the refinements of bull-shit.

Like so much about the British state, reality renders satire superfluous.
