“That is not normal. That is not a way to run any industry.”
You’re right, Mr Shapps. Overseeing a department which has been unable to resolve disputes for three years is definitely not normal.
We’d hope this exceptional self-own might lead to an epiphany from the transport secretary that something clearly isn’t working with his current running of the department, but we’re not holding our breath.
In the meantime, Twitter users have had a field day pointing out Mr Shapps’ excruciating slip-up:
\u201c@Okeating Imagine being in standard job and your boss calls you in for a performance review and you're like "In the 3 years I've been IT Manager there hasn't been a single day we haven't had a complete systems outage, that is no way to run a department"\n\n"You're right mate, you're fired"\u201d
Not content with the four goals scored by England’s Lionesses on Tuesday night, when they played against Sweden and made it to the Euro 2022 final, it seems as though Mr Shapps wanted to score a goal of his own.
Shame it’s an own-goal though, Grant.
