Here we are in the run up to the UK election and proof again that our politicians just can’t help themselves.

It really doesn’t matter what side of the political divide you are on, if there is money to be made from exploiting a position of trust someone will do it.

You would have thought that two senior politicians who have been around the House of Commons long enough to have witnessed the scandals of the last twenty years or so would know better but clearly not. Cold hard cash was dangled in front of them and both bit the carrot.

Were they asleep during the expenses scandal?

Do they not remember the Fake Sheik from the News of the World who set up many a similar sting?

We can’t expect anyone in public life to be an angel, we’re all human afterall, but when you are in a position of power and influence, we, the public should be able to trust people to use it wisely.

It saddens me, it really does but I expect this won’t be an isolated incident.
