Eurospeak

So this is where people learn to speak this blend of simple, clearly enunciated English filled out with meaningless examples of 'managementese'.

Bemused Brits can always consult the UK Rep's guide to Eurospeak:
Additionality
The principle whereby funding from the EU budget must be additional to that provided by national or local authorities.


See, we've all learned something today.

Hey! Thanks for your input, I'll pop it into my mental microwave, see if it defrosts.
