Could it be a case of "The Emperors New Clothes" ?.

There  seem to be a lot of phrases which have begun to be overused e.g.  'as I'll ever be'  - yes would suffice,
any which make you cringe?

"Safe". That word, that was once so inoffensive and innocuous, is now a major source of irritation to the (almost) half of the population who are still able to think for themselves. 'Stay safe', 'let's help keep each other safe', and all the rest of it. It is fast approaching the stage where the word is becoming the exclusive property of timid and brainless sheep.


Aaargh........!!!!!

Luvvies when they say I come from a rough area which in truth means I lived in a village without a Starbucks and a fishmongers ,

When presenters have to ask householders what they are going to do with the money they receive from giving away their items for recycling.

Children in TV adverts,  so cringing when it's obvious the advertising people put words into the children's mouths,  they would never say the spiel they have to say imo
