Listening to some female (Labour) MP on the radio this morning, moaning about Brexit. She was speaking in Corporate jargon and throwing meaningless sound bites around to prove she was on top of her brief. She used the term “known unknowns”, which always grips my shit. If whatever issue you are banging on about is known, it’s not unknown ffs! Certain individuals in Army HQ used to love the phrase too. Makes my teeth itch. Blue Sky thinking my arse!
The phrase originated with Donal Rumsfeld, not the sort of person you'd usually expect a Labour MP to quote
