The article linked to this quote is about a Conservative staffer to minister Christian Paradis by the name of Richard Walker. The quick story – said staffer goes on a bit of a vacation in Las Vegas using his government credit card and doesn’t pay the bill for five months. He gets caught, makes a payment and then moves on to his new position of ‘disgraced former staffer’.
Now go back and re-read the last sentance in the quote above:
That is exactly how our government should act in such circumstances.
Yes, our government should hide criminal activity, protect its staffers until they are caught, and then quietly hope this all goes away before the electorate connects this to our new and improved definition of “accountability”.
Any money on Dick Walker (I’m so childish) re-appearing as someone’s campaign director in a year or so?
