Learning by Repetition

"If you repeat the same statements time after time people will eventually believe you," so we are told. If anybody watched the P.M's embarrassing press conference on Sky TV today these are the messages which came over, and over, and over again:
"I shall not be moved....we have work to do....we will continue to do what has to be done, for the economy, for people's jobs, for the nation......." (blah, blah.......)

Calls for dissolution of parliament and a general election fell on deaf ears. Meanwhile, in the middle of the press conference came the breaking news of the resignation of another member of the government (or the outer circle of the Cabinet) Caroline Flint, Minister for Europe, and right in the middle of the EU elections. Zut, flut, alors! Mama mia!
