Azizi BS: Separated by a common language (163* d) RE: BS: Separated by a common language 25 Oct 09

I'm refreshing this thread because of some questions that I still have about comments I didn't understand that were made on the BBC Question Time show with Nick Griffin. I asked some of those questions in this thread thread.cfm?threadid=124461&messages=213#2751123 but don't want to distract from the serious nature of that thread by asking more.

[I should note that I don't mean to imply that particular thread wasn't serious when I asked those questions. I partly did so to "lighten" the mood a little. And I might have gotten one phrase one. I asked what was a "Whip up" but maybe the correct phrase that an audience member on that show used was "whip around".]


Here are the other questions that I have from that show:
Is the BBC referred to as "auntie"? I ask that because the moderator of that show asked Griffin if he considered being on that show as an early Christmas present from auntie. If that reference does refer in general to the BBC, why is that nickname used?


During that show, Bonnie Greer said something to Nick Griffin that I interpreted as "toot toot", but which I read in an online article as
"2:2". I gathered that it referred to the number of years a person attended a college or a university. Is that correct?
