We've been going forward with some blue skies thinking in the office environment . We want you, the stakeholders, to join us in proactively thinking outside the box to seek a level playing field for all those verbal utterances that are constantly cascaded up (and down) by newsreaders and presenters.

I can't keep this up.

Tell us which words YOU would like to ban. The Local Government Association is calling on councils to cut out 200 jargon words including "revenue stream", "stakeholder" and
