Earlier this year I called for a clearer commitment to using Plain English in council and official public notices.
Many of these notices are written in a way which is baffling, often leaving the public unclear as to the intention and purpose of the notices.
In August I said:
'I think people get really annoyed and frustrated by it.'
The Leicester Mercury covered this here: http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Public-baffled-jargon-council-public-notices/story-19659063-detail/story.html
The Mercury's Editorial also backed my call: http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Mercury-opinion-Ban-jargon-public-documents/story-19667331-detail/story.html
All public bodies and legislatures should use Plain English including councils, public agencies, national parliaments and the European Parliament.
