Old school lies


This will be an ongoing feature which lists and decodes words and phrases that are commonly used, especially by journalists, in total, and often deliberate, ignorance of their true meaning. You may disagree; you may wonder if I’m right. Best thing is to go look for yourself and find out. They are in no particular order – just as they come to me or seem appropriate to the current headlines. If you can think of any more, please let me know.
