Swearing for Swindon

Final pop at local journalism for the evening.

YOU cannot be serious! Swindon Council’s chief executive Gavin Jones and his predecessor Sir Mike Pitt are hoping to show off John McEnroe-like skills when they enter the Challenge Swindon sport festival.

I take it that what the journo had in mind was Mr McEnroe’s sporting skills, rather than his language skills as demonstrated in the rest of his ‘You cannot be serious!’ outburst.
