Today’s letter is D and today’s word is

It was going to be deficit, but then, like Rooney, France, ‘let’s all laugh at Liverpool’ and, erm, deficit, I found it was being a bit overdone to death in the twittoscopia. On the same page (as deficit) in my dictionary is this: definiendum.

definiendum (pl: definienda) – a word, phrase, or symbol which is the subject of a definition, especially in a dictionary entry, or which is introduced into a logical system by being defined.

So, as far as I can tell, definiendum is the word that encompasses all other words. Amazing, and possibly better than 30 percent job cuts all round except at Eton.

    It’s like 1980 all over again. Wish I was 18!

    nice round up of it all here by Johann Hari, Mr burger. Slightly partial approach, the kind I like best.

    Shall you organise a demo bus and get it to stop off to pick up the MCGs in east Anglia on t’way to Parliament Sq? I’ll bring some plovers egg sarnies on board and flask of mocachinno.

    I hope Diva hasn’t seen this*!

    *If she has it should re-invigorate the brewing and distillers industry!

    Where’s the counter argument? What do you mean there isn’t one. 😦
