Civil Service jargon

with 3 comments

Do you know what a “deep dive” is?

I always thought you needed an oxygen cylinder and a decompression chamber before coming back on board, but clearly I don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. But that’s OK, South Tyneside’s Labour Leader Cllr. Iain Malcolm is down in Brighton for Labour’s Conference and he didn’t have a clue either!

It’s Civil Service speak for an in-depth study of a particular social policy area, so there you are.

Don’t you wish that these graduates would stop infusing businesses and administrations with their silly use of the English language? Speak plainly man!

Right I’m back off to do an in-depth study of Manchester United fans.

  1. You learn something new every day. It’s certainly not layman’s language.

  2. Why don’t you put it on the back burner for now Curly and we’ll do some blue sky thinking about it later.

  3. A friend of mine, a Civil Servant, tells me that when he and his colleagues have to attend training days, they make bingo cards using the “in” jargon. Mind you don’t know what they’re tempted to shout when they get a full house!!!!
