Scandalgate

Just curious..

Why whenever we get a scandal these days does the word gate get added onto the end of it?

Sure I remember the Clinton/ watergate scandal but then we had years no nothing-gate... and now it's everthing-gate.

 

Whats going on?

Re: Scandalgate

Think it might be forum-gate shortly, when a mod see this and then sticks it in general chat.Grin

I heard there was an argument between a couple of farmers about entrances to their land, it was called Gategate...

Watergate was actually Nixon not Clinton.

Two narrowboat owners got into an argument while going up the Bingley 5-rise, they called it Lockgate...

Re: Scandalgate

Something closer to home, here's one that rolls off the tongue. What's up on IPv6gate?
