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.

Ministry biased ?

We've been accused of bias more times than I can remember, either through the comments or the MPs we've been asking to sign up to the Misrepresentation of the People Act.

As sensitive souls, this pains us.

For the record, our objective is to plug a constitutional gap - the electorate is entitled to formal, independent legal redress should an elected representative breach their fundamental obligation of honesty.

It just so happens we have a Labour government so they're gonna get most of the flak.

We confess this is compounded by the Blair factor. We're happy to go on the record as agreeing with ex Prime Minister Denis Healey's insight from the Sunday Times ;

"He has enormous personal charm but I wouldn't call him a communicator.
He's a bullshitter, and very good at it."

Meantime, I refer our accusers to this previous post,
"Great Political Porkies of Our Time (Pt 1)"
