I don't like to see people in trouble, but it's an ill wind that blows nobody any good.
Because now at last I understand.
I've been wondering for ages about the British Government's Troubled Families Unit.
The thing is, is it a Unit for Troubled Families, or is it a Unit for Families that has itself been going through some sort of a crisis?
Well, now I know.
The Troubled Families Unit has been having some difficulties recently and, yes, it's become a troubled Troubled Families Unit.
I can't say I'm surprised. They probably weren't all that sure whom they were supposed to be helping.
Word To Use Today: trouble. This word comes from the Old French troubler, from the Latin turbidus, confused (how appropriate) from turbus commotion.
