Quote: Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson’s column on page 22 of The Daily Telegraph, 24/11/2005, the subject matter of which is not something I wish to discuss on this blog (but here’s a clue), carried an excellent quote:

If we suppress the truth, we forget what we are fighting for, and in an important respect we become as sick and as bad as our enemies.

In some respects this can be applied in the work-place too. It’s important not to suppress the truth at work, otherwise employees become disillusioned, communication becomes garbled and some folks end up joining the “if you can’t beat them, join them” camp – something that is wrong on so many counts.
