    schema:description "Why do prime ministers talk so much and yet all sound the same? Is it just 'empty rhetoric', or is something deeper going on? Prime ministers use rhetoric not simply to beguile voters, but to fulfill the responsibilities expected of them under the Westminster system of government. There are various rhetorical roles that prime ministers cannot help but play if they are to govern effectively. This book argues that there are institutionalised patterns in the speeches that prime ministers give. Like an old-style jukebox, there are only a certain number of records in the prime ministerial machine. Inevitably, each prime minister will play the same songs in the same order as their predecessor. This repetitive rhetoric has an impact not just on the minds of voters, but also on day-to-day governance in Westminster system democracies."@en ;
