Why do they lie?

Mike Baird’s move – not to look after his family as he claimed, but to a top executive job at NAB bears out the rule – it’s not what you earn in Parliament, it’s the contacts you make. We see it now and over the years we have seen it often as top Parliamentarians leave loudly protesting almost without exception “I want to spend more time with my family” and then they move into top jobs. Why do they bother with the disclaimers or is it that they are constitutionally unable to tell the truth?
