Sense from Kim

Kim du Toit - Weekly Rant

"Britain's loathsome Labour Government is trying to overturn the process by which they select their judges -- in essence, as far as I can tell, making them political flunkies. The current process, by the way, has been in place more or less unchanged for over fourteen hundred years. So when a Law Lord suggested that instead of a Parliamentary-instituted change, that the process should first be reviewed by an independent panel of jurists and politicians, the Labour assholes protested, saying that this would take too long. Yeah, the selection process has been working quite well for over a thousand years, so we should change it quickly."

"The liberal slant of news emanating from the BBC is almost unbelievable."

And he also has a pop at Terry Waite - I remember when Saint Terry was flown home into Lyneham, by chance I was standing in Catcombe farmyard as the plane flew in over our heads. The old farmer looked up and just spat out "Wassack".

What's a wassack?

Guess!

Tim, you are a cruel, cruel man.

Nothing came up on google . . so lessee.

A contracted form of 'ass that needs whacking?'

a Wretched Abomination Seeking Socialist And Chaotic kismet?

Perhaps it's a rare form of kelp.

I don't know!

Also a last name, probably of german origin, and a mountain range in Nevada.

But judging by the context in which english people use it, 'ass that needs whacking' is probably close enough to get along with.

p.s.: It seems to carry a conotation of anal, nit-picky and all-around dweebishness.

I'm getting furibund!

so there too. : )

A wassack is a derivation of the word WASE, which was a saxon straw covering put on the head to protect the head when carrying heavy loads. A bright spark made a small sack to put the straw in..hence a wassack. This then gave rise to the term "strawhead"
Nowt to do with an ass
