Video: Veteran British Parliament Member Teaches House of Commons How to Say ‘Chutzpah’


British MP Dennis Skinner[Video below.] Veteran British Member of Parliament Dennis Skinner schooled a colleague at the House of Commons on Thursday on the correct pronunciation of “chutzpah,” the Yiddish word that means shameless audacity, the Algemeiner reports.

The Leader of the House, Conservative MP Chris Grayling had used the term with a soft ‘ch’ while addressing Parliament on the subject of unions. Skinner, the Labour Party MP for Bolsover, was quick to issue his correction, saying, “it’s not ch-utzpah… It’s h-outzpah!”

The gathered parliamentarians responded with raucous laughter.
