Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

This is not the Europeans, this is really Colman and Migeru, who have taken on the thankless task of reminding us that there are a number of words that we use without really thinking about it, and trying to make us explicit what we have in mind when we do use these words.

I personally think it is a worthwhile exercise. Their tone is not testy, just genuinely curious, i think - it's just that it's uqestions that seem so strange to us because we don't ever think about these things otherwise.

You're too kind. The truth is Colman and I are both mathematicians, versed in category theory, and grumpy to boot. So we mess with your heads.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?

Are you saying you do it on purpose?
