Within these figures there is a multitude of items which are described as “redacted”. This is a word I had never seen before and typical of the kind of words used by the PC fraternity which nobody has ever really seen before.
Redacted Personal Data was an often used phrase. Excuse me? So I remembered to look it up and ho ho ho – it means to edit, to work into shape … in other words – to make up, to manipulate, to spin, to mold. Redacted Personal Data … fabricated expenses.
To be fair, which, sadly, I have to be, it probably includes a whole pile of things lumped into one which are too numerous to mention but all perfectly valid. But then again … how are we to know?????
