  2. Another politician in deep doo-doo for telling nothing less than the truth.

    I remember back a few years reading a report about the arrival of around a hundred big trucks in one of these wasteland African nations, each one loaded to the roof with food. I remember seeing them offloaded onto the quayside on the news, and remember seeing them, the next day, on their axles androbbed of any easily removable parts, and their precious food cargoes on sale in the local markets...

    EM (for it is he) "Go on my son. Say this and you will truly have them eating out of your hand. Dont worry nobody ever record these sorts of event incase anyone says or does something that may offend"
    Godfrey Bloom UKIP MEP (for how long?) " Ok seems a reasonable use of a phrse most people have heard"
    EM "Mmmmwwwaaaahhhaaa"

  5. IIRC, the late Alan Clark, first used the phrase in the 1980s...
     
  6. Just Guardian pouncing on a relatively minor gaffe. I think he was referring to an imaginary country so that he wouldn't get accused of finger pointing, then of course he does finger point. Ah well....

    Just shows that this specious publication cannot argue with his point, just with the slightly less than elegant way he put it.

  9. It (or something very like it) was common in the 1950s, and probably well before that.

  10. Didn't Phil the Greek use this terminology at some point in the past?

    If he's referring to Gabon in west Africa, its official title is "Bongo & Son Land".
