I thought that I`d heard self serving, grovelling, snivelling, arrogant, baseless, obnoxious, oleaginous interviews by politicians in my many years watching television. That was until I listened to Chris Huhne at 7.00 p.m. on channel 4 News interviewed shortly before his appearance at crown court where he was sentenced to eight months in choky. He puts all others to shame. If you missed it look in at Ch4 oD. At the time of writing it`s not available to offer a link.
If one is seeking an example of why the great British public thinks more kindly of paedophiles than its politicians seek no further. But on a more serious note it is a danger for our way of life when such scurrilous actions are being accepted as just par for the course. Historically a perfect storm of political catastrophe always has such examples at its heart.
