Italian term or phrase: non biada per i cavalli
A politician is explaining why he enjoys his job: ... e un po' visione, un po' politica brutale, un po' così insomma...non biada per i cavalli.
What does it mean exactly and is there some equivalent phrase in English? Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me...
