the commentariat

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/08/w ... alal-meat/


Today it is frequently assumed — by sections of the political class, by the educational establishment, by the commentariat — that anyone who feels uncomfortable with Islam and its beliefs and practices must be driven by a racial animus towards Muslims more broadly.

A Spectator article on how the OCR board disqualified a GCSE student for criticising halal meat, that she had made ‘obscene racial comments’ about Islam.

As I am quite refined, I would prefer "defecatery" and micturatery".

What should we call the hankerchief? "Snotteratery" is too confusing. Is it one or is not one?

Could get a bit confusing in Shottery near Stratford-upon-Avon :?

Twitbookers.
A catch all term for those who cannot resist posting pictures of their meals, latest shopping purchases, grandchildren and all the other meaningless drivel that is either ignored or completely forgotten about tomorrow.

I was tempted to say that but thought better of it. I think the term is "self pleasure"? I am surprised the smut papers havent followed up on her admission

De-Royaled

“Prince Andrew has been de-royaled, if there is such a word,” said the historian and biographer Robert Lacey, an adviser to the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown. “At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I really would compare it to 1936 and the abdication of Edward VIII. What we are talking about is effectively the removal of a member of the royal family as a result of public opinion.”
