Power corrupts

The cash-for-honours affair is an example of how too much power rests in the hands of the morally and mentally feeble. We have a governing system that has existed for hundreds of years, yet still our politicians find ways to corrupt and misuse it. They probably think they are clever with their antics, whereas they demonstrate how very ordinary they are. To have a great vision and not be diverted from it by temptation demonstrates a nobleness of character which is lacking in the current crop of politicians. I hope in my life to see a prime minister worthy of the task, rather than these self aggrandising smart-mouthed children. They should feel ashamed of themselves for what they have done, but they will probably write books to make more money from that portray it as clever manoeuvring. I am ashamed for this country, to have leaders with such weakness of character.
