Anyone else notice how politicians keep saying ‘ Let me be clear’ or ‘ He was very clear’ ? Doesn’t mean to say they are telling the truth does it? I also keep hearing the word ‘transparency’. Must be buzz words at the moment. Have you noticed any others?
Let me be clear is a way of saying I'm giving you the truth, I think it works well in that respect but agree it means diddly squit. Can't stand the transparency one at all. I'm fed up with political speak. Buzz words craze me, let me be clear about that
My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.
