The Truth about Goats

Election Campaigns kick start five months of uninterrupted lying

With fingers crossed, fidgeting and winking to the camera, Prime Minister David Cameron fired the starting pistol to the longest sustained stream of bulls@$t in electoral history. He was swiftly joined by the leaders of all the main political parties keen to shovel on extra dollops of steaming manifesto deception.

And so it begins...

And so it begins…

All the way through to May 2015, candidates are expected to indulge in levels of non-stop shiftiness, which would normally send Pinocchio looking for emergency rhinoplasty. One animal behaviourist explained: ‘There are subtle tell-tale signs when a politician is lying. Lips moving or taking in breath are the two most obvious ones. But the one that people usually miss is whenever they meet a member of the electorate, they have to adopt a fixed grin, in order to suppress their natural gag reflex’.

Naturally voters are somewhat less enthused about five months of dissembling electioneering. One swing voter commented: ‘We all know the story of the boy who cried wolf, but no one mentions the story of the boy who pretended the NHS was safe. In that version of the story the wolf gets so embarrassed by the boy’s actions that he votes for the Green Party. And that’s saying something, as wolves are notoriously UKIP.’

Meteorologists have suggested that the mild winter has led to early spring buds and a tsunami of inexactitude. Meanwhile Messrs Cameron, Clegg and Miliband’s perfidious election promises are less like a Trojan Horse filled with sneaky Greeks and more like a dyspeptic donkey about to unleash a fountain of diarrhoea on your best rug. Then they will rub salt in into the wound, or faeces into the shag pile, by spending the next five years telling you how it is your own fault and that you have to pay for the clean-up.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
