OUP Oxford Word of the Year

OUP Blog: OUP Blog: Oxford Word of the Year 2012: Omnishambles

“Coined by the writers of the satirical television programme The Thick Of It, an omnishambles is a situation that

has been comprehensively mismanaged, and is characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations.”

Some examples:

(1)   Between the car accident, the food poisoning and the lost keys, the holiday was an omnishambles.

(2)   The eurozone has been building up to an omnishambles moment throughout the debt crisis and it finally struck

      in a small island state in the Eastern Mediterranean.

(3)   Cyprus controls an “omnishambles”.
