If ifs and buts were apples and nuts

Posted by Derek Illingworth on February 27, 2010 at 11:04

'If ifs and buts were apples and nuts...' the answer given here is that it was coined by an American radio programme host. I am English and my mother used this phrase long before I was born . I believe that this is English and much older than your contributor suggests. Any other observations please.

Many thanks
