If in doubt, pat your own back!

The Department for International Development did it, and now the Cabinet Office is following suit. What am I talking about? That would be declaring yourself the best in the world at something and putting a press release with a headline that suggests someone else might have said it about you.

You see, back in April, the DFID told us a report had declared them a "world leader" only to go on to say that the report was written by the Government about itself.

Today, the Cabinet Office has put out a press release titled, Britain's third sector - "the best in the world". It goes on to say,
Britain's charity and voluntary organisations are the "best in the world", says Angela Smith, Minister for the Third Sector
Well that certainly proves it, the Minister said so.
