Showing the same incisive wit and gift for parody that he displayed to such effect in the bestselling THE LITTLE BOOK OF COMPLETE BOLLOCKS, Alistair Beaton now takes on the might of Millbank by exposing the truth behind the spin. By examining closely the speeches of Labour's top politicos he first shows what they said and then reveals what they meant... WHAT HE SAID: The Internet is dissolving physical barriers and levelling the business playing field. (Tony Blair, speech at Knowledge 2000 Conference, 25.03.00) WHAT HE MEANT: I sometimes have trouble with my metaphors. WHAT THEY SAID: Labour has taken action to improve rail safety. (Labour Party Centennial Document, 28.03.00) WHAT THEY MEANT: That nice man from Railtrack bought us lunch and promised us there was nothing to worry about.
