Not just the Queen's, but from my English too

Cool. The boffins have released the 2006 List of Words and Phrases Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-Use, Over-Use and General Uselessness.

I agree. I haven't read the full list of words and phrases banned, but I would add the Australian politician's favourite brain-goo phrase: "At the end of the day".

What, at sunset?

Thanks to Emma at articulate for the (not breaking) news.

Update: Here is the 2006 list (it isn't long...) from Lake Superior State University. (edited 4/01/2006).
