Today´s idiom: Red Tape
The idiom RED TAPE refers to excessive rules and regulations, bureaucratic details and delays.
Example: I´m glad to announce I´ve made it through the red tape. The embassy has granted me a VISA so I´m going on holidays to Germany. ( = I have finally managed to get a VISA so I can travel.)
