• HOW come all of these stories about political corruption hardly seem to make a dent in the opinion polls?

I think we have to conclude that our country’s cultural change since the Thatcher years is now so deeply rooted that corruption is now an acceptable – even an admirable – way of conducting our lives.

“Good luck to him,” people say about some grubby chancer who has trampled over countless lives to make a billion or two.

Ethics are now all about finding loopholes and moral compasses are strictly for decorative purposes only. There is only one god and that is Mammon.
