Gordon Brown said, while on stage with Sarkozy, "Britain will be attending the Olympic ceremonies." Today, this was clarified, and apparently it means, "I'm not going."

Whether technically correct or not, this is misleading to the "common man" and would therefore be illegal if it came before trading standards or advertising standards. Why, therefore, do we tolerate it in politics?
