(For American readers, the reference to 'package' is a double-entendre word that is used by public relations experts (and hence now politicians, as they are constantly being briefed by PR gurus and image consultants) for a short TV news report, but which hardly anyone else ever uses.

Hence the constant use of the term by politicians, particularly when talking to Interviewer's, sounds kinda weird and perverted).
