A Last and Final Example

At the risk of doing this one to death, I simply couldn’t resist telling you about a little snippet from today’s Metro. You might like to consider this a little companion post to my recent thoughts about surplus verbiage.

Take a look at this written statement from the Scottish Executive:

We are also developing a more robust dialogue with key partners around the health of system and the impact of policy and refocusing the approach used to measure improvement locally and related support for benchmarking.

Gobbledegook? Yes. A textbook example. My heart quivers to imagine the man (and woman) hours that went into its production. Goodness knows what it actually means, or what significance it might have to the Scottish Executive ‘commitment to education’.

Take action. Stamp it out. I don’t want to have to keep talking about stuff like this.
