Davin and I are huge fans of BBC verbiage. The difference between Gamesmanship and Brinksmanship is a favorite topic of paint conversation.
You should have heard the amount of Brinksmanship drops in this Brexit-based interview the BBC did the other morning. It made stupid political theatre sound like the most exciting part of a 007 chase scene.
