tall stories

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'lies' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot judge whether this works.

'stall ridiculous conservatives'' is the wordplay.
'ridiculous' indicates an anagram.
'conservatives'' becomes 'tories'' (informal term for the Conservative Party).
'stall' is an anagram of 'talls'.
'talls'+'tories'='TALL STORIES'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for tall stories that I've seen is " Improbable tales".)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
