In Ireland -a 'snake-oil' salesman : a committed
'Yes' man , no matter what the question or his previous views on that subject : a 'know-it-all' who will plausibly convince you of how right he is , while
he fumbles in his greasy
till , professionally hiding
the fact that he knows nothing
about the issue
in question .
ends up in a political career !
Too many to mention - also too libellous to do so !
" That fella up at the bar , there
- he should
to fix ya up . He's a wee bit of a gombeenman , but sure
he's not the worst ... "
