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.

Competition - Political Whoppers

Win the Ministry's Higher Diploma Course pack

To celebrate the release of The Professor's "home tuition course" on DVD, we're holding a competition to find the biggest political whoppers ever. Want to share your favourite political lie ? Post it in the comments below. Competition ends on Friday 19th June.

The Professor describes the course as follows ;

"Making it illegal for MPs to deceive us is easier than you think and surprisingly good fun. I'll show you how. Take my diploma and discover the secrets behind the Science of Lies. The Kantometer, Alternative Reality Clarification and much, much more will be yours. Think of it as the class you wish you'd always had... part education, part kamikaze"

The Higher Diploma pack includes: “The Ministry of Truth”, “Taking Liberties” (DVD) and Peter Oborne’s book “The Rise of Political Lying"

Good luck.


  1. The biggest political lie is surely when they say "We live in a democracy".

  2. "British judges are the finest in the world"! God help the rest of the world!

  3. Lord Denning was rated (BY SOME!) as the finest judge of the 20th century. Perhaps he was - BUT WHAT DOES THAT SAY FOR THE REST OF THEM?!?!?!?

  4. "Greenbelt is a Tory Policy and the Labour Party intends to build on it." (John Prescott)
