Rose not so sweet

•Once again, politicians have proved to be born-again liars when in power.

The electorate will do a Green job on Labour at the next election. They will feel the full fury of the people, and will be obliterated to the political wilderness.

The good liars are politicians. Liars who have worked out the details of their stories beforehand have significantly more success than those who don't. As in everything, practice makes perfect. They get a thrill out of actively misleading others. They're good at it, and they enjoy the challenge.

The best liars are natural manipulators. You'll often see politicians respond to accusations with aggression, attack being the best form of defence. The very red rose Labour touts represents the elite bloodline it is so happy to protect.
