Graham Hall offers this delectable tidbit

>In the same publication, (p.31) Daniel Snowman, interviewing Lisa
>Jardine, attributes to her the following sentiment, "[...] Jardine
>learned far more from her bunfights with the Americans than from their
>'dignified' British counterparts [...]".

I gather there is some British meaning to the concept "bunfight" that
eludes their American cousins. Or is there? As a concept it is new to me
though not without a certain salacious appeal.

Cheers,
 don
