Nonsense slogans

On London trains (maybe even nationwide?) there are now regular safety announcements: “See it, say it, sorted” (or is it “sort it”?)

I get really annoyed every time I hear I as it’s such a rubbish slogan.

“Strong and stable government” is another one.

What are your most hated constructions?

Claims that products do something "up to 99%" - absolutely meaningless, as they could actually be only 2% effective and still comply with the claim. Whew, it was good to get that off my chest! smile

Good one.

On a similar note sale signs announcing “up to 50% off” are also very annoying. More often than not the items are reduced by much less.

Oh I hear that See it, Say it thing every evening when I'm waiting for my train at Finsbury Park. Very annoying!

Another hater of that stupid 'See it, Say it' slogan.

Not a slogan, but a turn of phrase I really loathe is 'at this moment in time.' It's tautological, given that a moment can only ever be 'in time.'
