LGA (TLA) PEC. Clear?

The Local Government Association (a London-based “union” for local government in the UK) has gotten its name in the papers for All the Right Reasons.

They’ve released a list of 200 jargon/buzz words and simpler alternatives.

It’s cheap news for cash-strapped papers and makes the LGA look like the Friend of the Bemused Citizen.

The press release has a quote from the Chairman of the Local Government Association, Cllr Margaret Eaton:

“The public sector must not hide behind impenetrable jargon and phrases. Why do we have to have ‘coterminous, stakeholder engagement’ when we could just ‘talk to people’ instead?

Quite.
