Let's be clear about this going forward

Published 15/06/2011 | 05:00

I agree with journalist John Rentoul's list of banned words and phrases (Irish Independent, June 14). I am certainly tired of hearing statements beginning with 'Let's be clear about this', especially when followed by expressions that clearly, if you like, in terms of going forward, we could kick the can down the road into what is a red line area. A more considered use of language could add some badly needed credibility. Or maybe that's the problem. Perhaps what is being said is 'all sizzle and no sausage'?
