Multi-area agreements - New Labour Nonsense No.4
I defy anyone to make sense of this youtube clip from 10 Downing Street, advertizing the launch of yet another meaningless New Labour initiative
Hazel Blears conceded that Multi-area agreements were gibberish. She started her presentation with the following fatal words:
"Hi, we're here today to sign things called Multi-area agreements. What that means in ordinary language is local authorities from big city regions coming together and saying they want to tackle employment, skills....etc...etc...."
This is how it is; we mere mortals speak ordinary language. Blears and Brown speak something else. I call it New Labour multi-area agreement language; a tongue that is totally alien to this fair isle but has somehow invaded and taken over the government.
