Sound clever in front of your friends

Given the current furore over the use of the word Tory (the Tories don't like it), I thought I'd mention that the word derives from the Gaelic toraidhe, meaning 'outlaw'. Its use in politics predates the Conservative Party (something to do with Royal succession - a prize for anyone who can tell me).

And my campaign was launched last night by David Blunkett (pictures to follow soon).
