You cannot tell a lie, politicians ordered
POLITICIANS will have to promise never to lie while in office, The Times has learnt.

For the first time MPs, ministers and civil servants will have to agree to a code of conduct which binds them to the truth as part of a package of measures proposed to combat the low level of public trust in Government. Sir Alistair Graham, head of the powerful sleaze watchdog, is driving through the first major changes to the Seven Principles of Public Life since their introduction in 1995.

The chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life said that he believed that trust in Government had declined further over the last two years. He will start by proposing overhauling the code’s definition of “honesty” — at present a technical definition focusing on conflicts of interest — after focus groups said this missed the central point.

The final wording of the new definition has yet to be agreed, but Sir ...

Neil,

I very much agree. However, in my experience there is also no shortage of professing Christians who deceive themselves so much they can no longer even recognise when they are lying themselves.

You put it well yourself on another thread:-
"IMHO, the Decalogue has simply not been internalized by most modern Christians."

Neil, on a lower level they know what truth is, even though because most if not all are not Christians do not know what the most important truth is, Christ has come to die for our sins and salvation is only through repentance of those sins and putting one's trust wholly in Him.

As far as the standard in the story goes, the politicians will lie that they are not lying anymore. This would be true for American politicians.

But one does have to remember, about Rendering unto Caesar,

or for a sermon on the subject

"The final wording of the new definition has yet to be agreed, but Sir Alistair said that it must revolve around the notion of truth"

And that's a big question! If you don't know what truth is (q.v. John 18:38), you can hardly define a meaningful prohibition against lying, or anything for that matter.

Oh come on fellas this has to be a joke it isn't April Fools day yet.

Whats politico speech without economy of the truth.?
If politicians started telling the truth today nobody would believe them. The reason for the low level of trust from all quarters, is the fact that we know they lie in their teeth to get legislation of dubious nature across to the hoi polloi.
This is how the political ideologies of parties are devised, and have been for centuries.
If a politician promises to tell the truth whilst in office HE/SHE will not believe the promise themselves - never mind the normal people in society.
