    Re-imagining" "Re-envisioning"..... (means - some kind of bullshit astroturfed half-baked ideas)

    "High Level" - (over paid people brewing up some kind of top down broad brush half-baked ideas - which unfortunately, they have the power to foist on us)

    I remember a couple of years back 'holistic solutions' was very fashionable. It seems to have been replaced with 'multi-faceted solutions'.

    'Fiscal space' FG buzzword made me laugh as they were caught napping.

    It's a diversion tactic as to avoid the issue of IW/Siteserv/Redacted turned into a 'live' election agenda.

    Curiously and no surprise IW and their related issues such as Redacted/siteserv wasn't mentioned in the papers during the election.

    FF/FG shot themselves in their feet most recently as they insist that people/electorate MUST pay water CHARGES.

    'Multi-agency' solutions - so much better than mere 'integrated solutions'.
