Re: Are you a 'village idiot'?

It was timing, nothing more.
The CRU data hack and the emerging stories of New Zealand and Oz temperature data manipulation have rather taken over and i suspect we will shortly need a new definition of "Village Idiot".

PS since the urbanisation of the countryside and the increasing number of jobs requiring Village Idiots to fill them, the traditional village idiot is in very short supply and inferior urban idiots are being recruited in ever greater numbers.
