not give someone house roomBRITISH
You can say that you would not give someone or something house room when you strongly dislike or disapprove of them and you want to have nothing to do with them. Some leaders should not be given house room in any western alliance. Personally, I feel that some of the paintings that people pay so much for are absolute rubbish. You know, I wouldn't give them house room.
