    Smile savage gusto?

    Simon Heffer addresses the core concerns of middle England with savage gusto, covering politics, education, crime, immigration and our national institutions.
    Hello. Could someone tell me what "savage gusto" means? I have looked up my dictionary for the two words. But I am in the dark when these two words are put together. Thanks.

    Re: savage gusto?

    From Oxford

    savage = adj. 2. involving very strong criticism.
    gusto = noun 1. enthusiasm and energy.

    I think he covered everything saying all the truths about those topics: politics, educatuion, immigrants, etc...

    He has not only enjoyed discussing these topics, he has done so with vigour and forthright opinions which may be highly critical.
