Clever. 'You foreigners are so clever,' said a lady to me some years ago. First,
thinking of the great amount of foreign idiots and halfwits I had had the honour of
meeting, I considered this remark exaggerated but complimentary. Since then I
have learnt that it was far from it. These few words expressed the lady's contempt
and slight disgust for foreigners. If you look up the word clever in any English
dictionary, you will find that the dictionaries are out of date and mislead you on
this point.

Any letter which talks to the right person about the right subject at the right time,
and appeals to that person's self-interest, will succeed. And it does not have to be
clever to do so. Of course, if it is also ingenious it may well succeed even more.
But that touch of originality is far less important than being relevant to the reader.
Indeed, unless you are a very talented writer, any attempt you make to be clever
could well frustrate your purpose, because the cleverness will get in the way of

Answer, modestly, 'no' and of course the interviewer might take you at your word
and deny you a place at Oxbridge where, naturally, only clever people are
admitted (so rumour has it). Answer 'yes' and you risk suggesting that you are
really quite a fool. For a start, the interviewer is bound to be, by virtue of his
position (on the other side of the interview), cleverer than you – and by
suggesting you might be on his level, you are heading for a fall! And for another
thing, anyone who has too ...

The prudent leader is certainly what we would call clever. Yet being clever,
knowing how to get things done, is not all there is to being prudent, because one
can be clever with bad intentions. Thieves are clever. Murderers can be clever.
Tyrants and cult leaders are clever (think of Hitler or Pol Pot). They have goals
and know how to achieve them, but their goals are not good goal. Gordon Gecco,
the character in the movie Wall Street, a ruthless insider trader who claimed “
greed is good ...

I prefer to use simple words people have heard before. It's not hard for me.
Somehow parading my stupidity just comes naturally. Once you've learned to be
simple, you can be clever. But be too clever and you lose your audience, or they
want to strangle you. Anyone watching me on The Five has experienced the urge
. Example One: Immigration Let's say the argument begins with, “I can't vote for a
Republican because they're against immigration.” How do you respond? Simplify
