    Dirty politics is the obvious answer, but it's kind of dull.

    I quite liked Akshully.

    Has anyone coined a word for the ridiculous statements coming out of the PM and the PM's office recently - I did do that, but I did it as a private citizen not as the PM?

    If not, I'm naming it Gollumising. "Not listening. Not listening!"

    it's a variation on the Bart Simpson defence "I Didn't Do It, Nobody Saw Me Do It, There's No Way You Can Prove Anything!"

    We could call it the CrosbyTextor Hat defence.

  • Ross Bell,

    Chris, I've not heard the term "synnies", but agree with Andre:
    - synthetics
    - synthetic high
    - synthetic cannabis
    - legal highs (an early 2000s term making a come back)

    And also "beagle".

    No problem. Re-endorsements will help me sort out the short(er) list for voting.

    Much as I almost think this should be banned to prevent them getting more publicity, one word makes 2014 distinct for me

    ISIS

    and on an equally depressing note

    Beheading
