I note that Simon Heffer has taken it upon himself to act as a defender of grammatical accuracy at the Daily Telegraph (http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/mediamonkeyblog/2010/aug/04/simon-heffer-daily-telegraph ).
I'm all in favour of choosing one's words carefully & ensuring that the correct words are employed (even though I'm a blogger!). However, Heffer should also understand the offence that inaccurate & bigoted jibes cause. It was Heffer, not Boris Johnson, who penned the infamous Spectator editorial about the people of Liverpool shortly after the murder of Ken Bigley in 2004 (http://www.spectator.co.uk/politics/all/12691/bigleys-fate.thtml ).
There's a particular word for Heffer which could be best described as Chaucerian.
