Susie Dent ‘that woman in Dictionary Corner,’ has done it again with another word of the day.
The Countdown co-host and genius wordsmith drops a word of the day regularly and they strike always a chord, but are they subtle digs at our political figures?
That’s up to you to decide.
Her word of the day comes as PM Rishi Sunak is hosting a cabinet away day at his country house, Chequers, where the forgetful taxpayer Nadhim Zahawi is expected to attend.
The outing that has been dubbed a “hideaway day” by opposition parties.
Word of the Day
Susie tweeted it out and wrote: “Word of the day is ‘bayard’ (16th century): one who shuts their eyes to reality and has all the confidence of ignorance.”
It has, as ever, gone down well…
Or is it this?
