The British people have been scapegoating Parliament because of members on the fiddle. Now MPs are piling all the blame on their Speaker.
As Oscar Wilde opined, 'Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people whom we personally dislike.' We don't like MPs. We don't understand or appreciate what they do, or benefit from it ourselves in any immediate or obvious way.
We have a problem here but it's not about lying and cheating, because we all do that, especially when we can get away with it.
A letter in yesterday's Times proposed a moral audit of the whole nation. Must have been a Rabbi.
