And the winner for the most confusing piece of jargon so far goes to:

"Following the adoption by the ACP-EC Council of Ministers of a Joint paper on the World Summit on Information Society (doc ACP-CE 2130/03) on 16 May 2003, which invited the ACP Secretariat and the European Commission to reflect on a possible joint ACP-EU Summit Initiative to be submitted to the Joint institutions for consideration, the Commission presented a draft ACP-EU Declaration on Information Society and Development to the ACP Working Party."

This is the appetising decription of a WSIS meeting today at 5pm. The only understandable bit is that there is a cocktail party at the end. I'll let you know what happens...

With jargon like that, I trust that it will be open bar...

That should be entered for some kind of Plain English Campaign award!

It's going to be a competition, Taran. Delegates will down large shots of tequila and see if they can read the above paragraph without hesitation, repetition or deviation...

LOL. Actually, considering the other things that happen during these occasions, I have a feeling that you may be onto something - move over Bistromathematics, we Beaure-tequilatics!!
