Description:


1 December 2003
Donald Rumsfeld 'honoured' for confusing comments

United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has won Plain
English Campaign's annual 'Foot in Mouth' award for the most baffling
statement by a public figure. And eight organisations have
won 'Golden Bull' booby prizes for gobbledygook.

Broadcaster Fiona Bruce will host the Campaign's 24th annual awards
ceremony in London tomorrow (Tuesday 2 December) to mark Plain
English Day. The Campaign is a pressure group fighting to get public
information written in clear and straightforward language.

Mr Rumsfeld said in a press briefing, 'Reports that say that
something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we
know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We
also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are
some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the
ones we don't know we don't know.'

Campaign spokesman John Lister said, 'We think we know what he means.
But we don't know if we really know...'

Among those narrowly defeated by Mr Rumsfeld this year were Arnold
Schwarzenegger (who said 'I think that gay marriage is something that
should be between a man and a woman.')
