sic
Someone who is against the proposed cuts made by the current British government; applies to all sections of society in disagreement with the plans.

Abbreviated form of 'sicosnipophobic'; which is, according to the mockumentary "Rock, Paper, Scissors: The Way of the Tosser", is someone afraid of scissors.

This short form is appealing because it is monosyllabic, as well as being homophonic and alliterative with its opposite, a 'snip'; ie. someone who is /for/ the cuts. The scissors analogy fits as it has become a symbol of the proposed cuts to the budget.

sic
sic, meaning "said in context" is used in literature to prove that the writer knows his mistake, but is publishing it anyways.
If the quotation you are using contains a grammatical error, you may reproduce that error, but you must write "sic" after it to indicate the error is not yours. You may also want to use "sic" after an offensive word or comment that you are quoting to indicate that you do not share the speaker's attitude.
