I thought it was only ST journalists who have a habit of writing “a slew of measures”. The phrase popped up yesterday and again today, in the news report of the private education council. Then I turned to BT, and there it was! Now used to refer to transport measures articulated during the COI. I don’t know why but slew keeps me thinking of sewer. In any case, the phrase seems terribly over-used. What about a range of measures, a raft of measures, an array of measures….or my favourite, just plain ole “measures”?
