Note to Schools from Powers That Be

“Brainstorm” is no longer to be used.
For brainstorm substitute “thought shower.”
And, no doubt, ideas drizzle,
inclement inklings
and cat and dog notions
leading to a creative downpour.

Yes, far too much PC nonsense in schools these days.

Word verification say - "DINCY MOP"

Ah Ha! The death of the Brain stormers. Those vile Nordic hobnailed yobs who jackbooted their way all over our very British wordscape.
Brainstorm: God bless Ogilvy and Mather and Wunderman Cato and Johnson and all those other interfacing jargon heavy Americanised lingo tilted chaps.

PC? Me? Never. Brainstorm sounds awful though. Just like having a one-to-one. One-to-one what?

My word verification is apt: VERMEN.

Word verification says "venge". This is a small village just outside Basildon in Essex.
