A Siberian Lesson For Mr. Dorrell

There is a story on Yahoo about the mayor of a Siberian town who has banned the use of certain phrases while in his office.  The article mentioned that phrases like "I don't know" and everyone's favorite "That's not my job" were not allowed to be used while speaking to the mayor.  This town is a huge oil producer, is growing fast, and the mayor isn't interested in excuses.  Yahoo quotes someone from the mayor's office as saying "The use of these expressions by city administration officials while speaking to the head of the city will speed their departure."

It seems that no one outside of the BN has ever taken Mr. Dorrell to task for using these same sorts of cliches in discussing things.  One colution might be to make a large list of things that he is simply forbidden to say and post it everywhere he might look during a press conference.  If that sort of list got hooked into a huge air horn, maybe interrupting those press conferences would make the point.

I salute any politician who won't allow cliches.  I guess they've done away with summary executions in Russia (in most cases anyway), but summary job termination is still probably an effective deterrent.  If Mr. Guerrero would only make this same point to Mr. Dorrell.
