Word of the Day – filibuster

19 Jun

imagesI’ve heard the term ‘filibuster’ used in reference to US politics (a term right up there with ‘pork barreling’) and but don’t recall it used in Australia. Now, it’s everywhere, and it’s all to do with the Emissions Trading Scheme.

Personally, the idea of wasting precious time in Parliament abhorrent. Professionally, I think we need more use of words that conjure up elaborate images (especially pork barreling).
