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.

Douglas Carswell MP 'hates' judges

The Ministry had a lovely run in with Conservative 'radical' Douglas Carswell at the RSA last week.

When asked why he had declined to support the Bill, Mr Carswell trotted out the tried and tested Harperson answer "I don't think the courts can deal with this" and went on to say, "to be frank it's (the law prohibiting deception by MPs) a stupid idea"

When pushed, he was quick to anger... "I hate judges and lawyers are even worse."

A friendly lawyer was on hand to help the Ministry out... reminding Carswell, "Well then you shouldn't be in parliament. You're a legislator and everything you do, you entrust to the courts".

Carswell, elegantly as a Kant can possibly be, hustled himself through the side exit.
