    Up the junction

    Hi,

    I would like to ask if the slang phrase up the junction is commonly used in English.

    Thanks a lot

    It may be a derivation from up the creek. The two phrases mean the same.

    Re: Up the junction

    I've never heard it either. Except in these contexts: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062426/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQciegmLPAo Neither of which have anything to do with "up the creek".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
