The pupils of St Ninians Primary School in Stirling asked members of the Scottish Parliament to use more Scots words
. Yesterday, MSPs agreed to help. The winner in meeting the challenge is clear:
Fergus Ewing (SNP) then rose to his feet to announce: "The word I choose to highlight is ‘bluffelheid’."
And would this wonderful word be useful for politicians? A "bluffelheid", Mr Ewing told us, is:
defined as "a person who has a very large head but a very small brain".
The presumption of innocence is being whittled away by our government. I suggest that all politicians must be assumed to be "bluffelheids" until they can prove to the contrary.
