At this time, in a very real sense

It's not surprising local newspapers think sub editors are a needless extravagance if their trade body, the Newspaper Society, believes this to be an acceptable sentence:

"This is partly due to current market conditions and partly because we want to look at improving the format of our awards going forward."

To quote Auberon Waugh: "I thought I understood the English language well enough, but just what the fucking, sodding, shitting hell is this idiotic sentence trying to tell us?"
