Euphemistically speaking

The Association of Convenience Stores is vowing to continue fighting against the tobacco display ban, despite defeat in the Lords last week. The bill was passed after Lord Darzi inaccurately reported the cost of conversion to be around £120 instead of the true minimum of £1,850. The realistic figure had been communicated to Darzi well before the vote but he ... err ... forgot to pass the information on.

Interesting terminology here.

"It is disappointing that the cost of the ban has been so inaccurately and confusingly communicated to peers and MPs over recent months," said CEO James Lowman. "It is important in the next phase of debate there is greater clarity about the costs."

Or, boiled down into a euphemism-free statement. Lord Darzi is a lying shit.
