"Meanwhile, the conservative Daily Mail slammed Romney as "devoid of charm, offensive and a wazzock." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2179582/Mitt-Romneys-Olympics-2012-gaffe-Devoid-charm-offensive-wazzock.html)"

This American correspondent desires to understand the full depth of meaning of ... "wazzock". Would our UK colleagues oblige?

Idiot, nincompoop, buffoon, dipstick, foolish person, one who has made a fool of himself in public.

And what kind of person would be likely to use the insult "wazzock"?

Sometimes knowing the origin of the insult is as interesting as the payload itself...

Tonight's news analysts were very succinct. "He should have stayed home!"
Not to worry. He'll be gone soon. On his way to do the bidding of billionaire (or "thousand millionaire" as you would put it) Sheldon Adelson who is easily snookered by anyone who feighns interest in Israel.

Sounds like a likely candidate for BROTM.

"Bilge wazzock" has a certain swagger to it.

We've already received a nomination for the Bilge Wazzock Hall of Fame.

We'll need a slogan - how about "Wouldn't you like to be a Wazzock too?"
