I’d like to make clear I take no responsibility for the Prime Minister’s inventing of new words 🙂
He does this quite often. I suspect his staff have told him that even though he is Prime Minister, he really should stick to using existing words instead of inventing new ones. But to no avail.
I know the Dominion Post has been compiling a list of words invented by John, and in due course they will publish the extended New Zealand Dictionary (PM’s edition).
