The Chairman of the Fluoridation society is not the only one having trouble with language. I subsequently came across an individual who was taking issue with the BBC’s treatment of the demise of Maharaja ‘Gizz-yer-money’ Mahesh Yogi: ‘Why do you need to compare a Maharishi to a Charlton? Mother Teresa was no ‘mother’ sharing space with dictators and the like. The Catholic Church doesn’t need to have so much money to serve mankind! It uses it for power games - (see the Da Vinci Code). I am always disappointed when the BBC derides Hindu figures as Charltons.’ What is striking about this (apart from the peculiar argumentation) is that the writer’s use of capitals suggests that he is under the impression that Sir Bobby, in defiance of his reputation for general virtue, has, like the late Captain Boycott and Mr Lynch, given his name to an unattractive human type or trait. Which strikes me as on the whole, a slur on a great man.
