Word used to describe Politicians, or governing
people in power
silly or dangerous decisions, policies, or the like which
usually have the opposite effect
than what they were intended for.
Politicians who are after media attention and PR to make
themselves look good and win "votes" rather than improve the situation for the voters.
I see Ken and Boris have been in the news again, arguing about yet another
silly topic - sillymen!
Oh no, not another bendy
bus accident, what are those
sillymen playing at?
Congestion charging, Emissions control zone tax, excessive anti-parking measures and no drive zone. Those
sillymen really have got it in for the motorist!
Oh dear, I can't afford to pay the taxes
and fines on my car any more
transport is utterly aweful. Damn silly men, I'm voting Geremy Kyle next time.
