Definitely Lord Copper – “Scoop”, Evelyn Waugh

June 29th, 2011 · No Comments · Journalism, The Media

Mr. Salter’s side of the conversation was limited to expressions of assent. When Lord Copper was right he said, “Definitely, Lord Copper” when he was wrong “Up to a point.”

“Let me see, what’s the name of the place I mean? Capital of Japan? Yokohama, isn’t it?”

“Up to a point, Lord Copper.”

“And Hong Kong belongs to us, doesn’t it?”

“Definitely, Lord Copper.”
