'Role models' are so corrupt

Politicians and media are lining up to condemn violence and looting, but from whom are these perpetrators taking their example?

Poorly educated and jobless, they have seen excesses of wealth gathered by bankers who avoid every opportunity to pay taxes.

Politicians give the impression of being wealthy spivs with equally spivvy friends. Newspapers have been revealed to be corrupt in their newsgathering and have corrupted the Metropolitan Police.

Before any politician, pundit or policeman expresses their opinion, they should ask themselves if they have any right to condemn.
