Sneak's Slip 'N Slang - BANANA

BANANA: Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anybody, which is much stronger than NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard). I first saw this in an article in _The Economist_. The piece was about California and its electricity supply problems, and included the pertinent observation that no new power stations were being planned there, let alone built. The reason? Its citizens and lobby groups have prevented such developments. 

Example: California has become a BANANA state.
