The dangerous divide widens

I see that so many police have fiddled their expenses that instead of being punished they're all to be let off with a caution.

Whereas so many politicians fiddled their expenses that most didn't get a caution at all: many remain at the top of the two main parties; the new speaker Bercow is as egregious a crook as the drunk he replaced.

What next? Too many knifings? How about a caution? Rape? Tut, tut, let's slap your wrist. Murder? Let's just say you lost your temper.

This is the way civilisation goes to hell: those who govern lose the consent of the governed.

They have, in this country, long lost our respect.
