There comes a time when corruption is so rife there is no point not being bent yourself. You don’t want to pay CGT on your buy to let properties? Transfer title into one or more offshore companies. Everybody is doing it after all, even Tory MPs & their cronies.

And since it ..
.. turns out the peasants do not revolt when you beggar them further but, on the contrary, read right wing rags & vote Tory, satisfied with a diet of nationalism, why bother improving their lives? There are vast sums to be made even from the poor, in gambling, money lending ..
.. & alcohol. And selling off state assets acquired & built up over decades is another huge opportunity. Ask any Russian oligarch.

Speaking of whom, who are your friends going to be? Your indigent countrymen or the obscenely rich? It’s a no-brainer. You don’t get ..
.. into the royal enclosure at Ascot by volunteering at the local food bank. You can put your rich buddies in the House of Lords with barely a squeak of protest.

Quite how you neuter institutions which exist to maintain standards in public & commercial life I’m not sure, but ..
.. we seem to have managed it. Maybe it’s the revolving door or lack of resources or even the prospect of honours (or all three). You can bungle an anti-terror operation so badly that you kill an innocent man, amid the whoops & cheering of a chaotic control room, ..
.. & still become a dame.

The IOPC can spend the best part of a year conducting a ‘scoping’ exercise before washing its hands of a clear case of corruption & cronyism. The Serious Fraud Office has never won a case (I exaggerate, but only a bit) so why worry?

And at the ..
.. top, a liar who has so subverted public life that his lies tumble one upon an another at such a rate no one can keep up. He has performed the valuable public service of exposing to all but the most myopic the intellectual corruption & cowardice of the BBC, which ..
.. facilitated his election & refuses to hold him to account for 70,000 deaths, with tens of thousands to follow.

So why bother? Let’s all inhale the miasma of greed & craziness as the insiders shovel their tax free loot offshore. If you can’t beat them, join them.
