How to Tell Who’s Lying

This is a short letter to yesterday’s i from J Wilson of Gateshead:

“After watching politicians on TV lately I have learnt who is lying. George Osborne tilts his head to one side. David Cameron jerks his head back and froward. Tony Blair moves his lips Corbyn: might take some time. ”

No mention of any women. Not important enough or are they honest? Is there any difference?

    And so it is… everywhere in the world. Surely there is a difference and probably no difference at all between male and female politicians. Meaning… women lie as well. It’s just that they’re still a minority when it comes to political affairs… Those who happen to climb high enough (and they’re indeed strong and feared by men, envied by most women!) are usually full of character, have strong personalities and are more aware of the world’s REAL issues. They tend to be a lot more sensible, sensitive and brave. I guess they’re also more assertive. Motherhood (innate to women, whether they become mothers or not) gives them THAT strength to fight for their own ideals and for whatever they think it’s right and those “balls” most men are unable to show but while “playing at wars”. This may be a reason why women a) are ‘unable’ to lie b) are better liars.

    Thanks (again) for this brief but rather important post, Barb dear!
