Some of us think the November theme, Lies and Misdirections, is more applicable to that individual.

That theme is applicable to Politicians in general of whatever stripe. Personally I find exceptions to be very rare.

False equivalence. Politicians may shade the truth and make questionable promises, but most politicians do not blatantly lie thirty times a day, offer alternative facts, and gaslight the public.

Sorry, I'll stop now.

It would probably be a good thing if we could draw a line under this particular line of discussion.

We've got a book choice we can battle about instead.

When I was looking up the titles just now, I came across an interesting article in the Guardian: Elizabeth Jane Howard: Hilary Mantel on the novelist she tells everyone to read. It's longish but worth a skim.
Very belatedly, thanks very much for the link to this article, issybird. I enjoyed reading it very much. And I do recommend all of Howard's books for anyone wanting to explore the work of an author new to them.
