‘CSCI’ or ‘sea-sky’ – prosaic or poetic?
It has been reported that inspectors and other employees of the new regulatory body are being discouraged from using the term “sea-sky” when referring to the CSCI. Apparently word has come from the highest level that the intials should be spoken thus: Å’C-S-C-I”. It seems that the ladies and gentlemen at the top feel “sea-sky” to be a bit infra-dig, conjuring-up ideas of satellite television – well, that1s the reason that1s been given. But loftier minds might link it with the late poet laureate John Masefield1s immortal lines “I must go down to the sea again, the wonderful sea and the sky . . . “. Would that inspection reports were equally inspiring.
