Great typos of our time.

From today's Evening Standard (physical edition), opining on Livingstone's congestion charge shenanigans:

"Today's announcement is one of his *queerest* 'class war' policies in his eight years at City Hall". (my emphasis).

Erm, 'queerest' as in odd? Nope, all too sadly predictable. 'Queerest' in sense of aimed at gentlemen who prefer gentlemen (in either derogatory or reclaimed sense of queer)? No, can't see that either.

And there's more - the writer speaks of the election offering voters 'a queer choice'. I think someone has been playing with his autocorrects.
