Buzzwords banned in England

Buzzwords have been banned in town meetings across England. According to a recent article on the Local Government Association has asked its members to stop using management buzzwords. Perhaps corporations should take the country's advice as well, it's not only ordinary citizens that find the continuous drone of buzzwords dizzying.

Here's the quote that brings it all home: "Why do we have to have 'coterminous, stakeholder engagement' when we could just 'talk to people' instead?"
It's an article that should make David Meerman Scott proud.
