'I'VE NEVER TOLD A LIE IN PUBLIC LIFE', Mark Latham told interviewer Neil Mitchell today, in my paraphrase.

'So you still think George Bush the most incompetent and dangerous President in US history?' asked Mitchell.

Do you think he got a straight answer?

Of course not; that would be a straight lie or a political disaster.

So much for Labor's Truth in Politics campaign.

Next stunt, please.
