Canada shows the way

Hats off to the Canadian spokesperson who called George Galloway MP an ‘infandous street-corner Cromwell’.  First, because it is a beautiful encapsulation of the man.  Second, because of the use of the word infandous.  So often, public servants are criticised for using opaque language.  In this case, all the news coverage had to give a definition of the word – ‘too odious to be expressed or mentioned’.  It is nice (almost unheard of?) to learn something useful from government spokespersons.  And this is one word I will certainly try to use more often!
