Where regular folk speak of a dog's dinner, or even a dog's breakfast, political types refer instead to "dangerous dogs". In Westminster, that's the byword for a spectacular mess, specifically legislation botched through being rushed. If a minister ponders a panicked response to a news story, a wise spad, or special adviser, will be on hand to whisper: "Careful, that could end up being a bit dangerous dogs."
