What is Truth?

I’m looking for some notes on Guide. I haven’t found them yet but came across this:
What is truth?

Something to trip up the lazy, the unwary and those with simplistic political agendas.

Warnings about Bernie Madoff’s impossible investor returns were ignored because they upset a rosy consensus.

Bertie Ahern, so enamoured by the ‘Celtic Tiger’ boom, once declared ‘the boom is getting boomier’.

Tony Blair, when told by Jacques Chirac that an invasion of Iraq risked triggering civil war said, ‘Poor old Jacques, he just doesn’t get it’. Jacques was proved correct calling into question Tony’s political judgement. Perhaps he looked at his overwhelming political mandate and became confused.


Free counters!
