I’ve just seen news of the arrest, by New Zealand police, of a teenage hacker who is being questioned in connection with major online fraud.
In the article the police are reported to have alleged that the teenager is a “whizkid kingpin”.
A whizzkid kingpin. Superb.
Firstly, can you ever imagine the British police describing someone in these terms?
But more interestingly, I would love to hear these words spoken in authoritative tones by a policemen with kiwi accent. How on earth would this phrase sound with those mutated kiwi vowels?
I love it.
