By the end, we may see profligate politicians hanging from lampposts. But there’ll be a lot of bad stuff, too. . . .
Some may find Glenn’s words intemperate. Sorry to disagree but if more politicians took the possibility of hanging from a lamp-post seriously, and if over-much effort hadn’t been spent over the decades on shielding them from the consequences of their misbegotten abuses of office, perhaps the country would be in a happier condition today.
No. I’m afraid it is the restraint, rather than the intemperate reminder, which has gotten us into this mess. And, as always, more of the same will surely not get us out.
