    Was it all smoke and mirrors. I looked up the pollies bible (Yes Minister scripts) and found some sage comments there.

    Sir Humphrey Appleby: You know what happens when politicians get into Number 10; they want to take their place on the world stage.
    Sir Richard Wharton: People on stages are called actors. All they are required to do is look plausible, stay sober, and say the lines they’re given in the right order.
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: Some of them try to make up their own lines.
    Sir Richard Wharton: They don’t last long.

    Sir Humphrey Appleby: It is so difficult for me you see, as I am wearing two hats.
    James Hacker: Yes, isn’t that rather awkward for you.
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: Not if one is in two minds.
    Bernard Woolley: Or has two faces.

    James Hacker: You are Cabinet Secretary. You must insist that we get papers circulated earlier.
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: Alas, there are grave problems about circulating papers before they are written.

    Sir Humphrey Appleby: I see. What do you advise, Bernard?
    Bernard Woolley: I advise you consider your position carefully, perhaps adopting a more flexible posture, while keeping your ear to the ground, covering your retreat and watching your rear.

    Sir Humphrey Appleby: We write him a speech that makes him nail his trousers to the mast.
    Bernard Woolley: Oh, you mean nail his colours to the mast.
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: No, nail his trousers to the mast. Then he can’t climb down.

    [about writing speeches for the minister]
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: We can’t worry about entertaining people. We are not scriptwriters for a comedian. Well not a professional one, anyway.
