Now here's an award which won't have a long shortlist - a Plain English Award for MPs. In a few weeks time, the Plain English Campaign will be hosting an event in Westminster alongside an exhibition to announce the winning nominations in the following categories:
PLAIN ENGLISH CAMPAIGN AWARD FOR THE BEST MP USING LANGUAGE (WRITTEN OR TECHNOLOGY) FOR THEIR WORK
PLAIN ENGLISH CAMPAIGN AWARD FOR THE WORST MP USING GOBBLEDYGOOK FOR THEIR WORK
With those award titles, I think the Plain English Campaign deserve a nomination in the second category. They are now seeking nominations for the best or worst examples of MPs for either award. Please send nominations for either award by Nov 10th to firstname.lastname@example.org and the final winners will be presented with their awards at a glittering Plain English Campaign dinner in December with Rory Bremner.
Labour MP Nick Palmer is sponsoring the awards event in Parliament and has also introduced a Small Print Bill.
So, which politician would you nominate for a Plain English award?
