sorry to go off topic again, but can anyone explain what the expression 'shoe-in' is all about? I've always had an instinctive distrust for anyone who uses it - my last boss, benny j - maybe it's a northern thing. ?


It doesn't seem to be a regional thing, according to this it's origin is in horse racing:

Yep, as far as I'm aware it's a horseracing term. Living in the part of the country that I do, there's lots of horseracing stables and things around so terms like that become part of the local vocabulary.
