Yet another example of one law for some (the privilidged some) and another law for the rest of us
I'll declare from the start, I'm an expat. I'm outa there already.
I left for other reasons, but situations like this just put me into "smug mode".
This, the Hutton enquiry, cash for titles etc. just go to show how far detached the ruling elite have become from the rest of us. No matter what their political persuasion
They live in a world where, as proved many times before, if a royal, or the PM, or a minister, or a lord, or a justice (and now even bankers) says something, it's considered the truth, even if it can be disproved. So they say and do what they want, safe in the knowledge that those who can investiagate (the police) are controlled by those (senior ranked police) who rely on political favour to advance their careers.
It's all an old school tie/members only club/association back covering operation that excludes 99.99% of the population, but includes the 0.01% of the population that can do the most damage.
Why doesn't it change. Why should they change, why rock the boat when staying in the boat has so many benefits, while the rest of the population barely manages to tread water in the current ruling elite, old school tie, banker inspired recession.
You want to know how their network works. You've all seen the story. The chairman who presided over the decline of HBOS was appointed to the vastly overpaid vice-chair of the FSA, which regulates the banks. Could be poacher turned gamekeeper, more likely looking after one of their own. And now he managed to resign. Some might say he did the right thing, but he's just one shit in a pile of stinking shit.
