The House of Lies

Today on BBC Radio4, when the Rt Honourable Sir Malcolm Bruce was defending the Lying former Scottish Secretary Alistair Carmichael, he defended him using the following words.. Asked whether it would be acceptable for an MP who had not told the truth to remain in office, he replied:
“If you are suggesting that every MP who has never quite told the truth or indeed told a brazen lie – including ministers, including Cabinet ministers, including prime ministers – we would clear out the House of Commons very fast, I would suggest.”
“The answer is that lots of people have told lies and you know that to be perfectly true..”

Possibly the most truthful thing any Unionist has ever said about Westminster, but what a terrible reflection of the representation the people of the British Isles gets from the British Establishment.

That second referendum on Scottish Independence is already coming closer by the day.

Note: Alistair Carmichael is an anagram of “Ach its clear Im a liar”

The House of Lies

We will lie,lie and lie again
If at first we’re not believed
We will lie,lie and lie again
until the gullible are deceived

You can’t say that word within the house
It’s the worst thing you can say
You’ll get thrown out,for saying “you lie”
but we’ll carry on lying anyway

We will lie to go to war
We will say the economies fine
the honourable member is mistook
and we spin another lying line

The Mother of all Parliaments
Is the Father of all Lies
Spin and Smear and Dirty tricks
We represent you, that too’s a lie

Nation speaks to Nation
yet we will lie to you
but get caught out, what you talking about?
we were mistaken,we tell you true

Lie.and Lie,and lie again
If at first we don’t succeed
“To tell the truth, this is a lie ”
The real truth is money, power and greed. …

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod
