I've developed the following guide after much study...
HOW TO READ A MINISTER– A Guide for the concerned citizen.
With the obvious distrust amongst the public of everything said by Ministers,
here is a guide to what a Minister means when making a statement:
If he's acting jocular He's about to lie
If he adopts a serious expression He's about to lie
If he leans forward and looks sincere He's about to lie
If he uses the phrase 'my friends' He's lying
If he talks about 'healing Britain' He'll make it worse
If he says he's for the working class He's certainly not
If he says 'we're leading the world' We aren't
If he says 'The government has always been clear on (whatever)' It never was
And so on....
