Re: Off Topic Room 101

[ Edited ]

This article appeared in my phone's news stream yesterday - I thought I'd put it in here, see how many of these biz-jargon expressions made it onto our Room 101 hitlist last time around...

Re: Off Topic Room 101

Amazing isn`t it?

Off Topic Room 101 leads and the world follows.... for example:

 

Jeremy Kyle Show banished to Room 101 - before ITV ditched the show

House of Lords blocking laws banished to Room 101 - Lords dropped plans to block anti-Brexit Bill

prorogation of Parliament banished to Room 101 - Supreme Court declares Boris`s prorogation illegal...

With the intelligence, common sense, compassion, and understanding of contributors to O2 Community Off Topic Room 101, they should form a political party which represents the wishes of the majority and true democracy - then this country would, indeed, give Power To The People...
