Yes. Not much there to raise a chuckle, I agree. But sound, high-minded stuff.

It’s criminal that Premier League footballers haven’t moved more quickly to take pay cuts and deferrals. And completely wrong that taxpayers are now being asked to subsidise cleaners, caterers and security guards at these clubs instead.

I write by hand, in what passes for italic. When I put it on the computer, I usually go for Cambria, because it's large and clear. I can't stand Times New Roman. Or the sans serif faces, apart from Gill, but that's not really a text face. It does matter.
