One of the things that I like about The Scotsman and The Herald is the way that readers can post comments on line in response to any article. The Nationalists are winning the comments war on both paper's sites.
A word that is used often in the comments, mainly to ridicule members of the Labour party, is the word Numpty - such a good word! Today's Observer comments on the word Numpty:
Numpty, according to a survey, is Scotland's favourite word, a great term to describe someone who is an idiot. The Labour high command are behaving like a bunch of numpties as they desperately try to stop the Scottish National party.
Next Tuesday the BBC's Welsh political pundit Vaughan Roderick is to start a Welsh Language political Blogg to rival / compliment his colleague Betsan Powys' offering and that of his anonymous BBC colleague Arsembly. Vaughan has stated quite clearly on the discussion board Maes-E that anybody who uses personal insults will not be mentioned on his forthcoming Blogg. In fear of being blacklisted by Vaughan I have decided not to suggest on this blogg that Numpty would be a good word to use in relation to our beloved First Minister Numpti Morgan.
