Where have you been hiding recently? Don't you know an election is on and smear season has been declared open? Here's how it works. Take two unrelated facts; bend time and space to create an otherwise impossible link between the pair of them; then point a finger at your hapless victim and shout your slush from the top of the nearest roof top. Finally, stand back and watch the brainless lemmings suck it up like it was gospel. Job done.
