"His photographic memory of Woking Pizza Express. His tendency to be
“too honourable”. You were watching a man who spent his life being
held accountable for nothing attempt to skirt an important issue with
the power of his bovine privilege alone, and failing hard."
What is "bovine privilege"?
"Bovine" means "strong".
Do have any evidence for that? "Bovine" is the last word I'd use or>
exoect to hear to mean strong.
means "bullish" - as strong as a bull.
Not to me it doesn't. "Bovine" means cow-like -- placid and mindless.
The OED has this sense:
figurative. Inert, sluggish; dull, stupid
And its relative has:
1.1 (of a person or their manner) sluggish or stupid.
Two of the quotations:
‘In it I expose the almost bovine stupidity of a famous Leftist
psychologist who tries to pin authoritarianism onto conservatives.’
‘How sad, I'm writing about my stupid bovine great aunt.’
