Going bananas over acronyms

  • Comment

Astragal's recent column concluded with the introduction of 'bananaism' as meaning 'ban anything anywhere'. I always understood the acronym 'banana' to stand for 'build almost nothing anywhere near anybody'. You can frequently hear its use to explain the refusal of almost any planning application!
