"weasel words": one of my favourite quotes, courtesy of Thomas Mulcair

Prime Minister Stephen Harper:
“To my knowledge, the Prime Minister’s Office is not being investigated. The RCMP has not said any such thing. What we have said is that we continue to work with the RCMP and provide them with any and all information required.”
The Leader of the Opposition, Thomas Mulcair:
Mulcair derided the answer. “Now there is a classic, Mr. Speaker: ‘To my knowledge.’ That is a new one. It is in the top 10 of weasel words.”
