A devious and conniving way of life never getz old, does it? These boards showcase some serious talent in that respect. Just kidding of course. The hard part is keeping track of your own devious. Some people keep dossiers, or so they lead us to believe.

The Tory candidate for my constituency was very devious and conniving (especially on Twitter) last GE. Thankfully he lost.

This thread is a reminder of Socrates(?)'s truth that Man is a political animal, whether getting a job, winning an argument, getting that boy/girl, avoiding being blamed et cet e ra. And to do that, you need a good memory.

The alternative route of telling the truth/being authentic has other difficulties, a good memory not being one. Nor needing to maintain dossiers.
