Nobody lies any more - but neither do they tell the truth. They provide "incorrect information" or engage in "differences of opinions" - but they never lie.

Our leaders find it hard to recall what happened last week but they'll tell you anyway.

Their versions of events might be facts or they might, in the era of Donald Trump, be alternative facts.
