What does it mean ????

While watching a British movie, I was confused by what someone said. He said, "Don't mind Phil, he's got the wind up" No idea what that means. Please explain.

Re: What does it mean ????

Usually means someone's scared, or bothered and having second thoughts about doing something, Bakerman.

Hope you are feeling stronger now.


(P.S. Just realised, why is this film question in General Health?)

Yes, as Mups says, you can put the wind up someone by scaring them.

in the movie, War and Remembrance , Phil is describing the steady advance of the Japanese down the peninsula toward Singapore, and he is saying that the "higher ups" have lied to the press about Singapore's invulnerability and even Churchill has been lied to. His friend then says, "Don't mind Phil, he's got the wind up."
