lobby fodder


lobby fodder
«Кулуарное мясо». Члены палаты общин Британского парламента, считающиеся маловлиятельными в своих политических партиях, но достаточно полезными или даже необходимыми при подсчёте голосов, т. к. создают нужное количество «за» или «против». Подобные депутаты не голосуют со своих мест в палате, их подсчёт ведётся, когда они идут туда через коридор вдоль палаты. Выражение lobby fodder образовано по аналогии с cannon fodder (пушечное мясо).
