‘Social distancing’, ‘rule of six’ and ‘the new normal’ are the top phrases adults Brits want resigned to the history books, research has revealed

A survey of 2,000 UK adults examined the things they would like to lock up and leave behind in 2020.

More than a third (36 per cent) want Donald Trump vanquished along with Dominic Cummings (31 per cent) and Matt Hancock (23 per cent), according to Hotels.com.

And 16 per cent of respondents would like to see the back of Boris Johnson’s 5pm briefings.

But while the politicians have been widely criticised, it’s the constant use of new phrases which has offended the public the most.

Joining the outgoing US president in the accommodation provider’s ‘Hotel Room 101’ will be the sayings ‘social distancing’ (59 per cent), ‘rule of six’ (51 per cent), ‘tiers’ (50 per cent) and the classic ‘new normal’ (49 per cent).

The word ‘bubble’, once used to describe something light-hearted and airy, is something nearly half (43 per cent) of adults are desperate to leave behind in 2020, never to be heard again.
