A curious rally recently in Stepney. Mayor Lutfur Rahman was mousily declaring "Panorama lies" to all who would listen, although he didn't seem bothered that no-one was.

For this wasn't a welcoming, come-one-come-all forum which politicians tend to hold at election time.

I try to limit how often I pick apart Mayor Lutfur Rahman's empty rhetoric, partly because it's a full-time job and partly because it wearies the soul.

However, an occasional example suffices to cover the whole.
