Fibdelity

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: fib-DEL-i-tee

Sentence: Fred was the consummate politician telling all new parliamentary members daly, that if you are must lie to the electorate, do it with spincerity. For, after all, you're doing it for their good, aren't you? Although, it cannot be said that Fred didn't have a political conscience, refusing to employ a spin-doctor, preferring to weave his own brand of fibdelity. But the most important piece of political wisdom he shared with his party's novice "gravy-trainers" was that, in the end, all that really counts in politics is having the numbers.

Etymology: FIB: to tell a white lie & FIDELITY: trust, trueheart, integrity.
