Contractual Lies

Sue Cameron of the FT took the trouble to call Hermes to dig into Labour’s spin that David Pitt-Watson is walking away from the General Secretary job because of “contractual difficulties” with his old job. “No contractual difficulties with us,” Hermes told her.

Well, says Labour, he has had difficulties extricating himself from his old job. “No,” says Hermes. “He left last week.”

We seem to accept blatant lies from politicians nowadays as just par for the course. Particularly if they come from anonymous spokesman. Guido always tries to name the spokesperson so that we know who is doing the lying. They don’t like that…

“Digger” Murdoch says:

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
