Omnishambles definition:


omnishambles (uncountable)

A situation which is shambolic from every possible angle.

For example:


"Not only have you got a fucking bent husband and a fucking daughter that gets taken to school in a fucking sedan chair, you're also fucking mental. Jesus Christ, you are the fucking omnishambles, that's what you are. You're like that coffee machine, you know: from bean to cup, you fuck up."

—Malcolm Tucker to Nicola Murray, "Series 3, Episode 1," The Thick of It.
