“The Wealthy, the Corrupt, the Brutal and the Brazen”

Whatever her, or our, political opinions, there’s a point here to pay attention to …

“If we are not careful, politics risks becoming the preserve of the wealthy, the corrupt, the brutal and the brazen”.

Think about current UK politics – wealth and tax dodging, corruption and cronyism, brutality and bullying, brazenness and blatant lying. 

“Bad people need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good people should look on and do nothing”.  (John Stuart Mill, Inaugural Address at St Andrew’s, (1867)

(Guardian editorial – 16/02/23)
