The good side of Politics

Reading Orwell and watching the Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister series.

“Political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question begging, and sheer cloudy vagueness.”
by George Orwell

Sir Humphrey: …There has to be somewhere to carry on government even if everything else stops.
Jim Hacker: Why?
Sir Humphrey: Well government doesn’t stop just because the whole country’s been destroyed! Annihilation’s bad enough without anarchy to make things even worse.
