Don't believe that such despicable behaviour isn't used over here, the algorithm goes something like this
- Government/Organisation/Company makes proposals not likely to be delivered in the short term,
- MP/MEP/AM responds that he/she is angry/annoyed/dismayed at these proposals,
- MP/MEP/AM frightens life out of interested parties,
- MP/MEP/AM and only MP/MEP/AM will save populace from such proposals.
Have a look for this algorithm in the local press, no prizes. Clue - The name of the MP/MEP/AM is usually the first 2 words in the first paragraph. It actually makes them sound a bit like the Mr Men, "Mr Angry", "Mr Annoyed", "Mr Dismayed".
