We were pre-briefed that he was going to use the word onanism in this speech. Nick Robinson called that self-gratification on the Today programme. I think, masturbation is the simpler definition. Did he ... use the word in the bit that you watched?
- Not in the bit I watched. And neither, unless he whispered it, I didn't hear him talk about groundhoggery as well, which were the other phrases which were pre-briefed.

Pre-briefed phrases, huh? Also, onanism requires definition through masturbation?
