When what we say is the opposite of what is actually happening

Rona Ambrose misspeaks.

The Conservative government dispatched one of its ministers Monday to the city where a 16-year-old girl was killed by her father and brother to condemn so-called honour killings, but it appears Rona Ambrose may have spoken out of turn…

She was asked if the government was considering such changes, and she replied that it was under consideration. “I’ll say that it’s something that we’re looking at,” she said. “Nothing more than that at this time.”

However, when contacted for more details about possible changes, a spokeswoman for the Department of Justice said in fact, that is not the case. “There are currently no plans to do that,” said Pamela Stephens.
