Susie Dent (you know her: the one from 8 Out of Ten Cats does Countdown, and the day time version too, or so I’m told) is surprisingly subversive on Twitter. Take this comment from her this morning:
Word of the day is ‘quockerwodger’ (19th century): a wooden puppet whose limbs jerk at the whim of the puppet master and, by extension, a politician whose strings of action are pulled by somebody else.

Who did she have in mind?
And I have to say this type of subversion appeals, greatly.
