In the maelstrom that is the kerfuffle about ACTEW Water’s (read “our”) $2.5 million bill for rebranding, I was somewhat taken aback by Mark Sullivan’s pronouncement that ACTEW Water had now branched out into neologism.
As the Crimes reports, in dismissing criticism of the rebranding, Mark boldly declared:
[quote]”Actew is just a word for us, it’s not an acronym any more,”[/quote]
So, Actew is a now a word, but what does it mean?
This newfound desire to have ACT Government acronyms attain word status, and presumably be attributed some meaning, opens up all manner of possibilities. Presumably TAMS, ACTPS, ACTPOL are also words, however, I think I might need the assistance of Rioters to discern what they, and other ACT Government acronyms, mean.
