Bruce: “If you’re telling me that every MP who hasn’t quite told the truth, or even told a brazen lie [should go], including cabinet ministers, including prime ministers, we’d clear out the House of Commons very fast.”

BBC: “You’re saying that lying in public life is widespread?”

Bruce: “No. Well, yes. I think the answer is lots of people have told lies and you know that to be perfectly true.”

Well that makes it okay then…
