Plain English

It is reported in the Daily Telegraph today (no link) that David Lee, the Leader of Wokingham borough council, has decided to banish gobbledegook from his council documents.

Examples: network model - map or plan; incentivising - motivation; predicators of beaconicity - good ideas.

Perhaps when David Lee has finished with his council he could turn his attention to MPs? How nice it would be if MPs spoke in plain English, told the truth - ie ceased using 'spin', stopped using 'selective statistics', etc etc.
