I’m not talking James Bond Quantum of Solace here i am referring to the recently published list of “banned words” for local government
- and my favourite “welcome”
I think we should set up a formal buzzword bingo game where every week we report how many times we actually here or read these words in internal and external communications.
A few on the list which in my opinion fit the “why would someone use this anyway” category are
- Tested for Soundness – is this trying to be “street”
- Worklessness – is this related to credit crunch
- Edge-fit – something i would expect to see in B&Q
Anyway, i will try my best to reduce my usage of some of these from now on.
