"propriety"

You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

Well, he (the Met Commissioner) does come from South Yorkshire, so you can expect some non-tonic vowels to be suppressed and some "r"-s to disappear, but getting from "proprietary" to "propriety" without noticing that it's a different word with a completely different meaning does seem rather extreme; but it's rather likely in context that "proprietary" is what he meant.

But I really like the footnote on it.
