Why I Love the English Language

I gather this one is surging on Twitter (or whatever the phrase is), but I can't resist posting it here. Did Cameron know what he was saying? Was it a Freudian slip? A sly joke by his speech writers? Either way, it is a matter of record that he began a speech on the mass looting with the following sentence:

"It is time for our country to take stock."

Bliss.
