The Independent Online
Sir: So now we have the minister for open government taken to task for being open - and telling a select committee one of the fundamental truths of politics. It makes his detractors look shabbily opportunist. What would they have preferred? Evasion? Devious guile? Mumbling, mealy-mouthed, weasel-worded humbug? Or just a good old-fashioned lie?

Yours sincerely,
