Not sure if 'character' is the correct term or the one I'd use . . although it would almost certainly begin with a small 'c' to be sure.

Great to see we're a laughing stock once again because of him and that f**kin' shop window. Can the council not compel local businesses to bring their shopfronts up to a certain standard?

It was in the Leader that they tried but McGuinness was waiting for assurances that it wouldn't happen again from the Guards or Court or something like that.

I didn't really have much interest in it.
