apologise One of the hardest things for any politician to do, but one that will be required of them if they breach parliamentary etiquette or are to survive the exposure of personal misjudgement or wrongdoing. Joseph Chamberlain’s motto was ‘Never apologise, never explain, never retract’; Spiro Agnew’s, ‘Apologise now. It will save time later’. In the twelve years since the publication of the now legendary Brewer’s Politics, the political lexicon has grown exponentially, as politics itself appears to have entered a terrifying, global age. Taking up where Brewer’s left off, The Politics Book provides a snapshot of where the language of politics finds itself today. A unique blend of hard facts, political insight and searing wit, The Politics Book navigates the soundbites, the put-down and half-truths politicians use to express themselves, and explores the meaning of terms, phrases and concepts that have become part of our daily vocabulary. Printed Pages: 977.
