    George Bush has praised Pervez Musharraf as a "courageous leader". The last time I read "courageous" in the political context was while reading 'Yes Minister'. Humphrey Appleby teaches minister Jim Hacker a few subtleties of the bureaucratic language (English):


    • 'Under consideration means we've lost the file. Under active consideration means we're trying to find it!
    • A controversial decision will merely lose you votes, a courageous decision will lose you the election
    • In the context of private information, RESTRICTED means it was in the papers yesterday. CONFIDENTIAL means it won't be in the papers till today.


    The books are truly masterpieces.
