A report by the City of Edinburgh Council has won an award for gobbledygook.
The Programme Momentum Progress Report – an update on the statutory repairs scandal – clinched the local authority the Golden Bull prize for "the worst examples of written tripe".
The Plain English Campaign hands out annual awards for gobbledygook.
They highlighted a paragraph from the report, which was published in August and is an update on outstanding debt from the statutory repairs scandal.
It reads: "The case review workstream has been established which now includes the legacy Joule case reviews and the deferred case reviews.
"Activity to date has included amendments to the case review deliverables to make them appropriate for deferred cases.
"Work is now progressing on the re-programming and re-prioritisation of the case reviews and confirming the number of cases to be reviewed by Deloitte and the internal CEC team."
The statutory repairs scandal left the City of Edinburgh Council with £30m of debt as hundreds of homeowners disputed their case.
