Freedom from falsehood



“If we really want to make things better, I

suggest we introduce a law that makes it an of-

fence for politicians to lie,”

But I thought it was one of my better ones ;-)

It would be highly entertaining if our National Ministers actually said what they were really thinking, or perhaps it may even be really frightening...

Can see such a law flying through parliament. ( Closely followed by flying pink pigs) Perhaps crazy Craig could start a new party just need to make sure his PA is a little older and not so attractive. The believers party

Great letter in the rag, Philip.
Local politics could do with a law like this also. Trouble is, many people are able fool themselves into believing they are telling the truth, or that it's only a means to a worthwhile end, etc. They tell themselves that the end justifies the means. That, or someone else assures them that this is so. Don Brash revealed how the National Party adopted that corrupt meme back when he was on top of their pile.
