Word of the week – hotchpotch



My job is all about ‘words’ and making ‘words’ work in the copywriting and web content writing world.

So I thought I’d create a ‘word of the week’ blog spot focusing on ‘words ’that we just don’t seem to use much in our everyday language.

And then I’m going to try and use these ‘words’ as much as I can so they become part of my life.

This week’s word – HOTCHPOTCH

This word must seem very strange to people who are learning English.

And yet, for English speakers, its meaning is immediately obvious.  Why?  You just have to say it and it makes you feel slightly ‘odd’ – and so we have its meaning:

an odd mix, all sorts, a job lot, a mishmash (another good word!), a jumble

What does it mean to me?

  • a fun word
  • means what it says
  • reminds me of playing ‘hopscotch’

What does it mean to you?


Brexit is Dead

I will re-post this daily, & as Arron Banks says, "public opinion is like concrete, once it sets you can't shift it".

Please feel free to share the same message & see how much concrete we can produce :).

Brexit means less sovereignty.

▪️A weak pound will allow foreign investors to pick off UK assets.

▪️WTO tariffs will make UK exports uncompetitive.

▪️Foreign corporations able to sue the UK Government.

▪️UK passport will have less power due to diminished freedom of movement.

Everyone needs constantly reminding that after 9 years of a Tory Government:

Child poverty + 50%
Food-bank use + 1,000%
Homelessness + 170%
NHS waiting list + 70%
Police numbers - 20%
Crime + 30%
Local gov funding - 50%
Public sector pay - 15%

Never forget how cruel they are.
