Brexit, Grexit..

Why don't politicians and journalists use English FFS.

Stupid lazy made_up words.

I know, let's now call an emergency exit an emexit.
Quick exit? Quexit.
Tradesmans' entrance? Trentrance.
Speed limit? Splimit.

Stunts.

The term Brexit makes me twitch. The current thread has my blood pressure up.

BTW is twitch the new name for a scratchy lady garden?

Political jargon is as pukeworthy as business jargon. "Sea change" and "breaking the mould" are my all-time most hated meaningless twaddle. Or is that my mated naddle?

This time I don't blame the politicians, it's the media. Same way the add "gate" on to any possible scandal.

It's a scandal that they add gate to every scandal. In fact, it's gategate.
