Mitzvah Meshugass


The Barnet Times reports that Mike Freer and his former Barnet Council comrades painted a lounge and hallway at one of Norwood’s Supported Living homes yesterday as part of Mitzvah Day.

There is something quite distasteful when politicians publicise their good deeds through the media. By all means, do the Mitzvah but if you are sincere, you will just get on with it without the need to tell the whole world.

Of course, politicians will argue that what they are trying to do is gain publicity for the charity rather than themselves (perish the thought) but if Barnet councillors really wanted to help Norwood, they would stop trying to slash its funding.

I really do think that 'Mitzvah' should be spelled lowercase 'mitzvah'. It isn't a proper noun. Have I placed this comment on the right blog ;) ?

That’s a bit rich coming from the editor of the Barnet Bugle, who uses a capital letter for every word in the headline of every story!

I Won't Be Spoken To In That Fashion! Whilst I'm On This Subject Shouldn't It Be "Don't call me Dave" Rather Than "Don't Call Me Dave"?

'lounge', DCMD? Tut tut ... Phone for the fishknives, Norman. I think you mean 'sitting room' ...

If a lounge is good enough for the Barnet Times, the well known paragons of style and diction, then it’s good enough for me.
