UK Election - Oops, Politics Again
What is Michael Howard on! Accusing The Tony of lying and expecting anyone to give a toss. Howard underestimates the intelligence (and cynicism) of UK voters. We all know that politicians lie when it suits them to do so. There are times when strategic lying, or 'being economical with the truth' is absolutely necessary. And this applies to many other professions - lawyers, actors, marketers, etc.
For Michael Howard to expect the electorate to reject The Tony because he lied about WMD is just plain silly. What we have in the UK right now is a situation where the opposition (yes, you Michael) are quite simply unelectable. And that makes New Labour the best of a bad bunch. People will vote for New Labour even though they don't really want to.
