Plain English Campaign announced the results of its 2013 awards on Wednesday, 4 December – and as ever there were great examples of nonsense among the winners.
Over the years, we’ve had plenty of fun giving the likes of John Prescott, Mitt Romney and George Bush a bit of unfortunate attention with our Foot in Mouth Award. We’ve also enjoyed rounding up the worst of legalese, jargon and gobbledygook with our Golden Bulls.
We’ve also been more than happy to offer credit where it’s due, and provide a bit of well-earned attention for those doing great work in the name of plain English, be they individuals, groups or organisations. There were many fine examples to join those past winners among 2013’s list of recipients.
