Stuart Derbyshire is a controversialist, which, according to one dictionary definition, means that he is “a person who disputes, is good at or enjoys controversy”.1 However, I found a better definition in Cambridge Dictionaries Online — a controversialist is “a person who likes to disagree with other people and say things that make people angry or think about a subject”.2 He certainly has made people angry on at least a couple of occasions during the past few weeks — I hope he has also made them think.
