An obvious oxymoron
I was working with our team from PolicyComparison to include key fact sheets on our website moving forward, as I thought this may assist insurers. We are reading and comparing the wordings and to do this is little or no extra trouble.
When I went to the website to learn about what was to be included, it dawned on me that the regulation imposing this on insurers was being issued by the Australian Government Department of Finance and Deregulation.
I think this could be added to the definition of oxymoron which currently reads: A rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined, as in a deafening silence and a mournful optimist. [source http://www.thefreedictionary.com/oxymoron]
I wonder if anyone within government or the department think this is as ironic as I do.
