 adj.— «Everyone from hardline feminists to dyed-in-the-wool conservatives hate what he has done. He has achieved a double distinction by producing an unpopular budget on the back of an enormous budget surplus. Why does the word Gubu spring to mind?» —“The last thing mothers need are Lord Kitchener’s marching orders” by David Quinn Sunday Times (London, Eng.) Dec. 5, 1999.
