Long-term readers will be aware that This Blog enjoys giving new nicknames to Iain Duncan Smith, including the current favourite, ‘Gentleman Ranker’ (indicating a soldier from the upper classes who has not managed to gain a commission; a failure).
Others have been based on acronyms, including RTU (Return To Unit) and SNLR (Services No Longer Required).
Today (Tuesday) in a comment, Martin Odoni has provided more, which This Writer feels duty-bound to share with you all. He writes:
“Other possible short-names for Iain Duncan-Smith; –
LMAYQASM – Leave Me Alone, Your Questions Are Scaring Me
UWTTOBETOS – Underpants Wetter Than The Ouse, Brainpan Emptier Than Outer Space
YANSM – Your Aloof Neighbourhood Spineless Man
CVFNNL – CV From Never-Never Land
WASWHAS – Worships A Socialist While Hating All Socialists
IKYFYOGYK – I’m Killing You For Your Own Good You Know
TRMIFTW – Thinks Ramsay MacDonald Is Fit-To-Work
CVFNNL is particularly appropriate, yet he is determined to dictate to others how they should write theirs.
