I wouldn't call them outrageous. I wish more "politicians" weren't too worried about losing votes and constituents to say what they are really thinking.

The BBC asked some people what they thought of Prince Phillipines ( Very Happy ) joke and they said that actually there are ltos of people living in the Phillipones. It is not half-empty they say. Rolling Eyes

Did someone not get the joke? Confused

Cool

In the sTeven Pinker book I read recently Pinker said that everyone always criticizes politicians for being slippery and not saying what they think, but when they do they say, "Oh my God! I can't beleive he SAID that!" Laughing

Cool
