Today’s “Word of the Day” is “soft touch” and it is a noun meaning “a person who is easily influenced to do/give what you want; innocent, fool“.
Example Sentence: Make no mistake, the IMF (International Monetary Fund) is still no soft touch. The conditions imposed as the price for financial support are often draconian (harsh/severe), and critics note the disconnect between the right-on (reformist/forward-thinking) rhetoric (extravagant, persuasive language, bragging/boasting) of the IMF’s managing director, Kristalina Georgieva, and the policies imposed by her organisation’s missions to struggling countries.
