Lie To Me – what links the pictures of the PM, Osbo and Sir Jeremy Heywood?
There used to a be a programme on SKY TV, starring Tim Roth, fascinating to anyone interested in pscyhology called Lie To Me.
Dr. Cal Lightman assists in police investigatons, reaching the truth through applied psychology: interpreting microexpressions, through the Facial Action Coding System, and body language.
A slightly protuding tongue between the lips is a sign of the person is lying. Additionally it is a sign of rebellion, like a small child poking their tongue out at an adult. It means I am lying, and I am getting away with it, up yours!
This expression appears frequently on the face of David Cameron. I find it significant that George Osborne and Sir Jeremy Heywood, denounced as Sir Coverup, recently accused of demeaning the Civil Service by underhand behaviour, are all repeatedly using the same micro-expression.
