"Busting a gut" and other outlandishly disingenuous phrases

"Busting a gut"

That's what Her Britannic Majesty's Secretary of Defence, the Right Honourable Robert William Ainsworth MP is doing. He's doing it to try to get more helicopters in operation in Afghanistan.

But hey, wait a sec. Gordon Brown says there are enough helicopters there. So Bobby Boy, sit back and pour yourself a long lager. No gut busting required here, mate.

There are eight Chinooks waiting to go out there.

...says our Bob. Excellent. Well done all round. And how long have they been waiting?

Er............. since 2002 actually.


Oh dear.

But let's not concern ourselves. Boys are dying out there. But the Secretary of Defence is "busting a gut".

So, that's all right then.
