The Professors passion for "The Science of Deceit" started here...

Employed by the Ministry (in a covert capacity) to help introduce the law ending dishonest politics, you can see his hand all over the posts of past.

Current political circumstances have forced him to reveal himself and as we speak, MPs are signing up to re-introduce The Elected Representatives (Prohibition of Deception) Bill for debate with over 80,000 voters supporting them.

Posts before Jan '08 are purely for the record (with hindsight they make fascinating reading). Posts after May 13th mark the Professor's return.

Cabinet Office fails Standards in Public Life Test

You’d have expected the Ministry of Defence to come out pretty badly in any review of disclosure and “whistle-blowing” policies. What you wouldn’t expect is the Cabinet Office, the Department of Constitutional Affairs and the Treasury to come out even worse.

The Cabinet Office actually only scored 3 out of a possible 28 points when measured against good practice criteria endorsed by the Committee on Standards in Public Life.

Public Concern at Work (the guys that ran the review) said: "As there are no sanctions in government for such a woeful performance, it is now down to incoming prime minister Gordon Brown and civil service chief Sir Gus O'Donnell to insist that the Cabinet Office practices what it preaches if it is to earn its place at the heart of government."
