To botch something is to do a task badly or not to complete a task, a repair or a project. A “botch” is the noun (chapuza).
- The EU, in 2019, approved the end of the hour/clock changes that have occurred in October and March each year. The changes have not been implemented: it is a “botched job” (una chapuza).
- The EU has botched the changes (…ha estropeado los cambios).
Why? Who knows? The EU top dogs are “botchers” (incompetentes).
