Headlining their musical co-op

Let's face it, there's no point in using the English language correctly when there are are so many "cool", if illiterate, alternatives.

And there's no better example to set to our "young people" than to show them how to use a noun as a verb by simply adding "ing"- as in "parenting" and "partnering".

I'm pleased to see some parts of further education are doing their best to bring teenagers up to date with the latest made-up words.

On my doormat this week, I find a press release from Stockton Riverside college about its National Young Co-operatives Congress, designed to demonstrate its "commitment to the principles of co-operative development".

On the agenda: "Musicing - an alternative way to put across a message through music."
