The term QUOCKERWODGER, although referring to a wooden toy figure which jerks its limbs about when pulled by a string, has been supplemented with a political meaning. A pseudo-politician, one whose strings of action are pulled by
somebody else, is now often termed a QUOCKERWODGER.
Usage: The shameless arts of the sycophant are not monopolised by Mr. Quocker-wodger and his congeners."
