Here are two shocking reports on fascism.
  1. Emma Thompson "I am absolutely fascistic about how my tea is made."
  2. Anita Roddick "[husband Gordon] is a bit of a fascist [in the kitchen]."
All from today's Observer Food magazine.

All totally gratuitous uses of the word "fascist".

If "fascist" only connoted images of Emma Thompson in a strop over badly made cups of tea then the world would be a much happier place. But it doesn't.

It refers to this guy and this guy, this guy, their followers, and their activities.
