Whigging out

Every Spanish writer has been there: four paragraphs into a piece and desperate to throw in some clever synonyms.

Let’s say you’re writing for El País about Ed Miliband and the Labour Party. You can only use the word “laborista” so many times without looking like a lowbrow ignoramus. Time to spice things up!

PRO TIP: Make sure your “synonym” does not actually refer to a completely different (and defunct) political ideology.
