+ someone doesn't know the difference between a paedophile and a paediatrician

Yes. The ceefax news has the Gwent police attributing it to "incredible level
of ignorance". Every so often, someone has a go at the label "paedophile" for
its pejorative usage (rather than just meaning "child-lover") but this is as
lost a cause as the use of "gay". One can see where the confusion in this case
arose, but it must be peculiarly devastating for one who has devoted her life
to the care of children to come home to a house daubed with "Paedo" graffiti.
