Politicians, they’re strange cattle.

They make weird decisions, contradict themselves, receive a lot of public abuse and have refined to an art form the skill of not answering questions.

Very few get praise for the good things they achieve and their time is not their own.

But, some of them are good at being a politician. Not many, but some.

They spin their dialogue, use demeaning platitudes and are the envy of many a Snake Oil Salesmen.

Their verbal output is the subject of this cartoon and in particular a technique which they’ve effectively developed over the last few decades.

Why do they do it? Why do they do it?

Why do they do it? Why do they do it?
