Spotted on a bike ride with my son yesterday …
Gee, what was wrong with ‘Howick Police Station‘?
Is this newspeak really better?
“Run, Jimmy! Run to the Community Policing Centre!” Er, nope.
(…and what, I wonder, do they call a Fire Station these days?)
Any other examples?
Update: A thought occurs — maybe it means there’s not always someone (on duty) there? Hmm. But Police Stations are unmanned/unstaffed elsewhere, surely, and still called Police Stations …
