Ed - as you may know here in the UK we have an election coming up in June, and the word 'mugwump' has been used and much argument over its meaning and origin.

In the 'i' newspaper a letter was published claiming that our Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, only knew the word as he was 'posh' and read Arthur Ransome books in his childhood.

So Ed, could you search your database and find out if AR ever used the word?
