It's called the Four Dog Defense. It's been used for years by the tobacco industry, and climate change deniers.

 

 

 

 

As opposed to the Two Dogs Question, which is a completely different thing.

Not that I am saying lawyers and politicians are Narcissists but this thread reminded me of The Narcissist's Prayer :

 

 

That didn't happen.

 

And if it did, it wasn't that bad.

 

And if it was, that's not a big deal.

 

And if it is, that's not my fault.

 

And if it was, I didn't mean it.

 

And if I did...you deserved it.

 

(and you should apologize for making me feel bad)

 

 

NB re
SaltyNZ:It is not illegal for a politician to lie
Interestingly in the USA under 18 U.S.C ยง1001 it is a crime to make a false statement. Madoff, Martha Stewart and, as part of the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 elections, Rick Gates were all convicted under it.

GV27:

 

You overlook the fact that Boris was chosen by his party to deliver Brexit on a platform of leaving on 31 October, 2019, deal or no deal. 

 

People seem upset he is doing what he promised to do. Trying to hold him so vague ethical interpretations what you think laws should mean as opposed to what they do mean is overlooking the way the opposition have carried on (prattling on about democracy while knocking back attempts to hold a snap election because they are electoral poison and know they would be out of a job). If you're going to hold Johnson to that level of scrutiny, then you're not going to like your alternatives - unless it's one of those morals of convenience deals where people don't actually care. 

 

 

Exactly - well put and couldn’t agree more. Only issue is that he wasn’t actually elected fully democratically - but elected properly nonetheless.

If you’re referring to the Two Dogs question that I’m thinking of, that’s quite a funny joke IMO and one I used to tell frequently. ๐Ÿ˜
