Furious agreement

I could have asked Marina Orlova (who always reminds me of Grishkin), but a friend in Chile posed the question and I suspect found the answer which will do me, unless someone else can come up with an even better theory. The question? What is the origin of the phrase “furious agreement” ?
When I do a Google search, most of the references are from Australia. This suggests it is an Australian phrase, although the way Google tweaks searches these days it may just prove that I am using an ISP which tells them I am an Australian.
But my friend turned up this 1991 book Furious Agreement written by Michael Dugan in 1991, published by Penguin Books in association with the Australian Institute of Management.
Any advances on this?
