QuestionHow can 'medium' be the lowest tier? Pin

... and how come, not a single journalist asked that question? WTF | :WTF:

The dictionary definition of 'medium' is pretty simple: 'being in the middle between an upper and lower amount, size, degree, or value'. Does no-one in Government (including scientists and advisors on huge sums of money), even have a grip on basic English? No wonder we are in the sh*t! OMG | :OMG:

Also, how come no criteria was set out for the different tiers? And, again, not a single journalist thought to ask! This is a system, (and I'm being generous to call it that), that seems to be designed to encourage political ping-pong....

Bozo: "So, Andy, we are putting you in the very high tier."
Andy: "Don't think so Boz. I calculated that we are in the medium tier."
Bozo: "What? How [the ***k] did you get to that?"
Andy: "How [the ***k] did you get to very high."
Bozo: "I'm afraid I can't tell you that Andy."
Andy: "Well I can't tell you how I got to medium then! Now, 'do one' Boz!"

We are doomed! Frown | :(
