Meaning of gordon bennett

gordon bennett means: Expression of surprise/disbelief. Probably a "concealment" of the Cockney expression "Gawd (God) Almighty". Possibly (but doubtful) also the name of the first British footballer to land a contract for more than a million pounds. John R. writes: I agree with everything about your entry except the provenance of the word. I know a lot about football and the 1st million puond player was Trevor Francis, I have never heard of a player by the name of Gordon Bennet. Besides which, it is a very old expression pre-dating anything like that. This was sent in by Matthew Hill: I remember using the phrase Gordon Bennett quite often in the seventies and eighties whilst I was at school. My mother still uses it occassionally, so I can only surmise that it was a character who was famous at the time. However, there is a Gordon Bennett Memorial Hall in Thurcroft, South Yorkshire (my school was in Dinnington, South Yorkshire) which was built in the mid-eighties. Who it is named after I do not know, but it may provide another launch-pad for further research! (ed: So we still don't know who Gordon Bennett was. Has anyone got any more ideas where the expression came from - or why it originated?)
