I have been quite properly scolded in an e-mail from someone with a disability who points out that the term has connotations around the recognised meaning of mongoloid/Down’s Syndrome/subnormal and is deeply offensive to people with disabilities. I certainly didn’t make the connection, nor would I have used the word if I had… I apologise to anyone else who has been unwittingly offended “
