Have you noticed these words are so often repeated especially in parliament ?
robust
clear
Once someone says they have a robust argument everyone else seems to have one too . I wouldn’t choose ‘robust’ for something abstract . I’m not saying it’s wrong just that I wouldn’t choose it. Let me make that clear ! 🙂

When politicians say "let's be clear" you know there's going to be a lot of waffle. (Obviously you're not waffling Gemini!)
