Social Democrats: Savisaar wants to become president

to table something...my understanding of this English-language terminology is that it means to postpone.

So far as I can tell, it does not mean to introduce something new.

Putting something on the table does mean an introduction but the verb "to table" has the opposite meaning. To table means to take it off the table.

If this confuses you, I do not wonder at all. IT IS CONFUSING. It is a language problem. Reply to the comment answer

Actually this is different between British and American English, which I why I try to avoid the term to avoid confusion. To table in American English means to end/postpone discussion. To table in British English means to put it on the table (to start discussing it).

Or maybe I have it backwards, but the point is it's confusing.

I guess being a mayor doesn't pay that well to the useless hog. Reply to the comment answer
