Tight as a duck’s…

The complete expression is “tight as a duck’s arse (..and that’s watertight)!!” It means mean or not wanting to spend money. Clearly that’s the case for Boris and the number 10 crew or perhaps they were simply expecting a very big crowd… far more people than they wanted to foot the drinks bill for anyway. I mean, come on Prime Minister surely it’s the height of tightness/meanness to ask a few friends round to your place for a drink and then instruct them to “bring their own booze” – i.e. bring their own bottle! Surely after saving all that money on your home renovations you could have splashed out on a few drinks for your colleagues? Clearly your a*rse is much tighter than your adherence to your own rules………. 😉

Party at Boris’s
