Description

"You know the trouble with the French? They don't even have a word for entrepreneur!" George W. Bush "I'm making absolutely no comment...and no, I did not!" Boris Johnson If you want to hear something stupid, just listen to the nearest politician. Following on from the extraordinary success of Mission Accomplished, this is a further collection of the often unbelievable verbal blunders, indiscretions, regrettable promises, about-turns, deceptions and lies that politicians speak. Ranging across the centuries and across the globe this salutary and hugely funny book comes bang up-to-date with all those immortal lines our leaders have accidentally made into classics. Here are some of the magnificent gaffes, fantastic faux pas and extraordinarily idiotic utterings from the great political names of our age, including George Bush, Gordon Brown, Barack Obama, David Cameron, Mitt Romney and Nicolas Sarkozy.
