    This quote by Goebbels appears to be the Tory mission statement:-

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

      Yes indeed – I made the same point in January last year: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2013/01/07/the-benefit-cap-will-happen-but-we-dont-need-to-believe-the-tories-big-lie/

      (This is why it’s such a good idea to buy the Vox Political book collections – they contain these valuable nuggets of information in a simple, easy-to-access form. You can buy them by clicking on the images of them at the bottom of each VP article – and you’ll be helping me to make ends meet because I’m brassic at the moment! End of advertisement.)
