The language of our politicians


Until recently, such bad language in our measly parliament was restricted to words such as coward, git, guttersnipe, rat and stoolpigeon. How then has it deteriorated to include contemptuous reactions to the death threats MP’s are receiving? Batty Boris’s “Humbug” and the altercation between Dangerous Dominic and another MP are colouring our judgment. It seems, as this photograph suggests, that such language is legitimising extremist public reaction. They won’t be satisfied until we deterioqate into all out civil war!
