I’m surprised by the reaction to my post on the Local Government Association (LGA) banned words story yesterday.
It’s amazing to think that one of the highest rated councils in the country with the lowest council tax, wastes money on jargon.
I think Wandsworth is pretty good at avoiding ‘jargon’ in its communications, so don’t expect to be too embarrassed by The Local Government Association‘s (LGA) attack on jargon in councils. Indeed, generally I support the LGA in its stance. If councils can’t communicate with their residents, then you have to wonder who can. But I cannot help but feel they have got it slightly wrong.
