Semantic Vandalism

Destroying the meaning of words

The Labor/Greens are experts at spin and distorting the English Language so that the meaning of words becomes blurred. The latest example is the word "reform" which means "to make better or improve"
.
In the Labor lingo of PM Julia, now reform can reliably taken to mean "stuff up". Other examples are the double banger "gay marriage", "carbon" and "carbon pollution", "global warming", "climate change", "healthy river" and now everything has to be REFORMED, including the tax system, pokies and so on, it seems, to infinity. Why don't the Federal pollies just stuff off and leave Australia the way it used to be, that is, happy and prosperous?

Of course it all shows the wisdom of the English publisher and writer Ernest Benn (1875 - 1954) who said "Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedy". God help Australia.
