Sir Pat coins a phrase

On announcing he would stand down as an MP Sir Patrick Cormack said: "I am not retiring - I am merely changing direction."

It reminded me of several other phrases including:

“I am not fat, I am merely big boned.”

“I am not lazy, I am being serene.” (One I confess to using many years ago as a lazy teen.)

and...

“I am not an expenses cheat, I acted within the rules.” (A more recent addition to the phrase book.)

Feel free to make any suggestions.

I am not a benefit cheat, I'm a socialist supporter.
