I think Mr Gardner needs to put more water in whatever he's drinking. He writes

‘Cabinet’ (usually pronounced ‘cabinay’ by English speakers and ‘cabinet’ by others)

Nonsense, the only time when 'cabinay' is used is in the context of a bottle of antipodean Cabinet Sauvignon. Also, that pronunciation hasn't been used in the context of the Ministerium [sic] since Henry V occupied the throne ;)

Thanks, Right Paddock, I agree - it does seem odd.
