Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?
Mr. Flower was a Man-with-a-barrel and one who knows how to tap it.
a Man-with-a-barrel = a person having access to the state treasure-house (please see my preceding thread "pork barrel" below)
tap the barrel = dip in the gravy
Thanks for your efforts
