: "Gone over to Rome"

: I heard this on the UK 'Weakest Link', and have no idea even what it means, let alone what it relates to. I guess it means betrayal, but Ann Robertson used it to refer to a 'dum-dum'.

"Gone over to Rome" in British English means "converted to Roman Catholicism", and "Dum-dum" is an expanding bullet; those are the only meanings as far as I know. Does that fit what you heard her say? (VSD)
