Office workers use 'pointless jargon'

Office workers have lost the ability to speak clearly to each other - an issue which is "horrible and damaging", a new book called Who Touched Base in My Thought Shower? has claimed.

The Today programme's Justin Webb asked workers in Canary Wharf to explain their least-favourite sayings and phrases used in the office.

Steven Poole, author of the new book, explained how office jargon and clichés manifested themselves in our conversations.
