Tony Blair used to be considered a bit of a past master at the art of what, for want of a better word, we might call lying, but Gordon Brown seems willing to take dissembling to new heights. This is the prime minister who once stated he was withdrawing a given number of troops from Iraq, amidst much fanfare, and then quite failed to do so. Well, on the Spectator blog, Fraser Nelson has provided a detailed analysis of Brown's PMQ announcements, to devastating effect. As he says, just as Brown's jokes aren't funny, his facts clearly aren't to be taken seriously.
