Focus lacks focus

I don't think it's a law of nature that Lib Dem Focus leaflets have to be badly produced and semi-literate. It just seems that way.

A few weeks ago I received one from Councillors Metcalfe, Seare and Vincent, members of the new Lib Dem/Conservative ruling coalition in Leicester, the one that increased Council Tax and slashed grants to voluntary groups. The leaflet referred to the worries of residents in "Rowely Fields" (sic) and explained that "with the traffic calming measures going in along Cort Crescent, efforts for other schemes continues" (sic).

The leaflet claimed that under the previous administration "1.6 million had been taken out of ,one off capital reserves to pay for on going revenue expenditure" (sic - don't blame me for the punctuation). But its most bewildering statement was that "there were other revenue expenditures which the Moines to pay for them had not been properly identified". Who were these mysterious Moines? Were they a little-known group of civic benefactors originating from Iowa? Eventually, I concluded that the word must be a mis-spelled and mysteriously capitalised attempt to write "monies".
