    I haven't worn long trousers even once for 10 days and even then it was only for two hours.

    My posts as a rule get the wrong end of the stick, the thread doesn't matter! 😛 😉

    So, am I to understand that the right end of the stick is the wrong end?

    If someone has the wrong end of the stick it means they've misunderstood something. If they've got the sh&tty end of the stick it means they've got a bad deal in some bargain or share-out.

    I don't think 'end of the stick' is a right at all I think it is a privilege, whether wrong end or not!

    It is an expression that has been around for years.

    Right and left are no more applicable to sticks than dark ends are applicable to streets in songs.

    If you are talking literally about sticks, poles and the like, I am ok with that. Which is the "right" end will depend on which way you are facing. To someone else it'd be on the "left".

    You're clearly trying to suggest a person's politics are based entirely on which way round they are standing.

    I am not talking about a particular person's politics! You are reading too much into it. If I wanted to talk about "a person's politics" I would just come out and name them.

    I'm shocked to hear you are planning on naming people whose politics you disagree with.
