    My word of the day is “stigmata”. It was used in an obit for a very successful British diplomat, “He bore the stigmata of Edinburgh, where he was born” Goodness knows what Scots’ think about this reference- coming from the word stigma- to their capital city. I am sure it can be used in describing Anderton, Hide, Peters, Dunn. Note to self- Peters: stigmata of/to/from– Maori–

    My tartan genes ought to be affronted by the link with Edinburgh but I do like your local references.

    A mark of disgrace or infamy; a stain or reproach, as on one’s reputation.

    You may well be right Richard..

    Tell that to the blue rinse brigade that is going to ensure that Winstone rises from the grave.
