    But that sort of stuff is pedantic, grammar Nazism, surely?

    The quoted sentence suggests some "experts" thought/advised that rolling out the vaccine rapidly would not necessarily lead to a fast economic recovery (whatever that definition of "fast" actually means?). It also implies there must be evidence to suggest that the original assumptions/advice were not accurate - in other words, it seems the economic recovery is "faster" than originally thought due to "fast" rollout.

    However, it's a very awkwardly written sentence - presumably to save column inches?

    Dave the Scouser is touring America on holiday and stops in a remote bar in the hills of Nevada. He's chatting to the barman when he spies an old Indian sitting in a corner-complete with full tribal gear, long plaits and wrinkles.

    "Who's he?" asks Dave.
    "That's the Memory Man," says the barman.
    "He knows everything. He can remember any fact. Go and try him out."
    So Dave wanders over and asks: "Who won the 1965 FA Cup Final?"
    "Liverpool," replies the Memory Man.
    The tourist is amazed.
    "Who did they beat?"
    "Leeds," comes the reply.
    "And the score?"
    "2-1."

    Dave tries something more specific.
    "Who scored the winning goal?"
    The Indian does not even blink:
    "Ian St John."
    The Liverpudlian returns home and regales his relatives and friends with his tale, and he's determined to return and pay his respects to this amazing man. Ten years later he has saved enough money and returns to America. After weeks of searching through the towns of Nevada, Dave finds the Memory Man in a cave in the mountains.

    The Scouser steps forward, bows and greets the Indian in his traditional native tongue:
    "How."
    The Memory Man squints at him and says:
    "Diving header in the six-yard box."

    My wife got really mad when I told her she had no sense of direction.
    She packed up her bags and right.

    Good to see she stood up for her lefts. You must be feeling you lost her?

    This popped up at the end of that video, interesting chat with Ray Parlour. We get a mention towards the end. Worth a watch.
