    mismanaged, characterized by a string of blunders
    and miscalculations; a complete screw-up in all areas

    Street these days to describe the series of self-
    inflicted political disasters that have engulfed the
    prime minister, David Cameron, and his coalition
    - Independent, Dec. 07 2012

    "Today Oxford University Press announces omnishambles
    as Oxford Dictionaries UK Word of the Year 2012.
    Originally used in the British political comedy
    television series The Thick of It, omnishambles has
    gained momentum throughout 2012 as a word used to
    describe a comprehensively mismanaged situation,
    characterized by a shambolic string of blunders."
