Weasel Words - Speaking Out

User Rating: / 0


You have to admire the dexterity of politicians weaving words in a tight corner, don't you?

Take the Government spokesman at October's Tynwald commenting on the latest misadventures of Iris (The Perils of Pauline had nothing on this lady).

No expression of regret for erratic navigation that has left the Government up shit creek without the proverbial paddle.

No reflection on what went wrong.

No determination that 'lessons will be learned', etc.

Simply the bald statement: 'We are where we are.'

A profound view, there's no denying.

We are all too aware they are where they are - we voted them in.

Almost makes you despair of democracy, doesn't it?
