cajolery (n.)
"act of cajoling, delusive wheedling," 1640s, from French cajolerie "persuasion by flattery" (16c.), from cajoler "to wheedle, coax". Coleridge used cajolement.

cajole (v.)
"deceive or delude by flattery," 1640s, from French cajoler "to cajole, wheedle, coax," a word of uncertain origin; perhaps a blend of cageoler "to chatter like a jay" (16c., from gajole, southern diminutive of geai "jay;"), and Old French gaioler "to cage, entice into a cage" . Related: Cajoled; cajoling.

"No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the ..... Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin."

Aneurin Bevan
