Word of the day

Doryphore – a pedantic and annoyingly persistent critic; someone who constantly draws attention to other’s minor flaws; person who points out the mistakes of others in an annoying way.

    As in the Labour Party has many doryphores amongst it’s members.

    I’m pretty sure he’s in the Greens.

    “someone who constantly draws attention to other’s minor flaws…” has actually drawn rather a lot of attention to their own flaws. I wonder if there’s a term for that?

    “cry for help” is all that comes to mind.

    Care to give some actual examples Peter Salmon, because drawing attention to the major lies that have been told about Labour fundraisers does not make someone a doryphore.

    One could argue that the whole raison d’etre of an opposition MP is to BE a doryphore…
