Daily Telegraph: "Word of the year 'omnishambles' reflects British mood"

Spin to the Daily Telegraph

"Each year, Oxford University Press follows how the English language is changing, and chooses a word that best reflects the mood of the year.

" 'Omnishambles' was coined by the writers of satirical television programme The Thick of It.

"It is still most commonly used in political contexts, but its usage has evolved rapidly in other contexts, to describe any debacle or poorly managed situation."
