    is that the BBC decided it had to explain the word "dotard" :rolleyes:

    I reckon Rupert Murdoch must be running it these days

    Now that this useful word 'dotard' is back in circulation, I expect its frequent use, by opponents of both sides in discussions about Brexit.

    The word must have been in the air, looking for a home: I used it for the first time in years a (very) few days before the Wrong'Un's translator.
