Surely We're Not That Bad?

So we have Wee Wendy accepting illegal campaign donations and thanking the guy in a personal letter while for a while saying she knew nothing about it. Add to that our beloved first minister calling Tony Blair's family "revolting." And these are the people who want to lead us? They expect our respect when truth is they are no better than some of the worst of the contestants on Dragon's Den. It's popular to say that the electorate gets the politicians it deserves, but surely we are not that bad?

At the risk of appearing crass, I can't help but wonder if people would have been far more sympathetic if the FM had been referring only to Cherie.

Still, that line will probably do more to repair relations between Bute House and the current occupant of 10 Downing Street than any possible formal initiative.
