Someone who insists they're right despite clear evidence they are wrong, is a mumpsimus (from the 16th century).
What's the plural?

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Respect is something you earn and Donald and Sir Malcom commanded that respect. However, riding their coat tails and attempting to capitalise on their successes does not command respect at all.

Maybe all the shenanigans have less to do with what is happening with CN7 this year than with March 23 next year?

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

“I think number plates are great fun, and in some cases very apt. They can tell you a lot about the owner.”

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

But that seems to be a regular thing, I recall having to take time off work and driving to a house spending the entire day with a team of volunteers doing a fingertip search of what I can only describe as being a golf course in the rain for a certain lost St Christopher.
