What does all this cr-p mean ( zero )
If all Trumps tweets and Tv sh1t and Brexit could be made into a pudding would anybody even try to taste it .
I think not ; not the people who have been to sea anyway .

Looks like they are all going to Sh1t the bed . One mans view . D

"Push-back" is an Americanism for resistance, reaction or opposition to an action or statement.

I dont really know what "double down " means.
"Me neether", as they say. "Double Down" appeared Downunder recently and means nothing to me. I'm almost getting my head around "back to back" though.

Another one that confuses me is when they talk about "Offshore Winds" and "Onshore Winds". I know that a westerly comes from the west and an easterly comes from the east but "offshore" and "onshore" ... duh!

It all depends on the direction you are facing, when having a p1ss, on the end of the pier. With, or against the wind.

As a card player I knew what Double-Down meant but bugger me I never realised it was an Intransitive Verb. Maybe that's why I had so many loosing hands.
