Would you like a definition with that?

The empire of chew and spew run by King Ronnie is on the march in the UK to change the dictionaries. Yay, Orwell with red hair and pale white skin! Apparently, saying that a McJob is "an unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, esp. one created by the expansion of the service sector" is more demeaning than giving it to them to do, or not encouraging Union participation in the work place, or providing them the work through advertising targetted at children.

There's even a motion in the British House of Commons sponsored by a labour minister. When left is right and right is? Let them eat french fries.

Perhaps now McDs can also encourage the OED to redefine healthy, balanced, ethical and a few other words?
