    要解釋這句當然要先了解什麼是spin。

    spin 為政治或商業上的用語,屬於public relations的範疇,它是一種說話的技巧,巧妙的運用一些資訊、數據及事實來企圖影響他人對某事的觀感或看法,達到自己期望或對自己有利的目的。

    常見的sping有:

    Selectively presenting facts and quotes that support one's position (cherry picking)

    Non-denial denial

    Phrasing in a way that assumes unproven truths

    Euphemisms to disguise or promote one's agenda

    請參考:

    http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Spin+(pu...

    spin doctor甚至就是指精於此道的人。

    所以這句話的意思就是指

    布萊爾不希望人們日後只是記得他曾出兵伊拉克、只會搞政治手段(只會操弄政治語言、文過飾非的人)--他希望別人記得他的不是只有這兩件事(而且還是不好的)而已。

    art 這裡翻藝術不如翻技術。

    refine the art 即是"精通此道(技術)",或是"使這門技術更出神入化"。

    refine the art of political spin 也就是"精於此政治語言操弄的技術"或是"使這門技術更精熟"了。

    上面有個spin打錯字,應該是spin(沒有g)才對,特此更正。

    2006-12-20 10:15:55 補充:

    剛剛又想到,spin這裡的意思應該也是脫胎於其原意"翻轉"的意思,故用在政治手腕上,political spin 也難免給人"翻手為雲、覆手為雨"的那種叱吒政壇要風有風要雨得雨的感覺。而Tony Blair給人的可能就是擅用此道的人。

    "spin" as defined in politics, it's a way that political parties present the good/positive things they had done to the public instead of bad/negative things.

    In public relations, "spin" is a usually pejorative term signifying a heavily biased portrayal in one's own favor of an event or situation. While traditional public relations may also rely on creative presentation of the facts, "spin" often, though not always, implies disingenuous, deceptive and/or highly manipulative tactics. Politicians are often accused of spin by their political opponents.

    The term is borrowed from ball sports such as cricket, where a spin bowler may impart spin on the ball during a delivery so that it will curve through the air or bounce in an advantageous manner.
