Inhabitants of a parallel universe

What is it about MP’s that makes them think they live in a parallel universe devoid of morality or ethics? Any person living in this universe, and engaged in politics, would have put personal ethics at the very top of their to do list.

But, no. Three Labour ex-cabinet ministers have been caught touting themselves for hire as paid for lobbyists. Being an MP is a privilege. Having the ability to manage our national affairs is reward enough. Their leveraging every opportunity to enrich themselves is not what we expect.

The surprise for me was Patricia Hewitt, on whom I’ve been queasy before. Being ensconced on the boards of Alliance Boots and Cinven is clearly not enough.
