    policy/ bickering

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?
    “Voters want future-oriented policies and not partisan bickering,” Roettgen shouted at the opposition.

    policy = a line of argument rationalizing the course of action of a government

    bickering = quarrel, squabble

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    policy = a line of argument rationalizing the course of action of a government More simply put, a policy is a general plan of action adopted by a government, politcal party, company or person.

    bickering = quarrel, squabble Yes.

    Thanks for your efforts.
