A New Definition

While it seems to have some mild use already, I propose the addition of the following to the Australian vernacular.

Ruddite (n. & adj.):

  1. (n.) a person (particularly a politician) whose fear of teh internets leads him to attempt to dig a hole all the way back to 1984.
  2. (adj.) in the manner of a Ruddite (1).

Examples of usage:

Clive Hamilton, amongst his other failings, is a complete and utter [long string of expletives deleted to avoid libel suit] Ruddite.

The Ruddite mandate to provide a nanny state clean feed internet for all Australians remains one of Australia’s darkest political hours.
