The Ruling Classes Just Dont Get It

Mr Murdoch his slimy son and Rebekah Brookes for a start,resignations apologies agreements to appear in front of parliamentary committees are all fine but how in the first place did they allow a culture to grow within parts if not all of their organization that made it seem even vaguely acceptable to hack into the phones of the likes of Milly Dowler or the families of 7/7 victims.
The police,Sir Paul Stephenson's resignation statement intimates that he had to go because of employing an ex NOTW deputy editor,nothing about the fact that he accepted £20K's worth of health farm recuperation from a New International connected company at the same time as the Met were shutting down an investigation into alleged phone hacking.
Politicians oh my god where do we start with this lot,Cameron employs Andy Coulson when it was already obvious that he was carrying a lot of baggage and if yesterday's papers are to be believed he took advice from Rebekah Brookes on that appointment,then he has half of the top brass of News International round for Xmas dinner when phone hacking rumours were starting to surface.
Labour of course are squeaky clean which is why Ed Milliband is currently making the running,squeakty clean my backside,virtually all the time of the New Labour experiment Blair Brown and mpost other Labour grandees were cosying up to Murdoch and his team,I mean Sarah Brown had Brookes round for a girly night at no 10 amongst a number of social and working contacts between the parties.
So what is the answer,well to be totally honest other than a revolution I'm not sure that there is one,Modern day politicians don't appear to grasp that they are working for the electorate not their rich buddies.the Murdoch crew are no doubt already planning a new bid for Sky once the heat has dies down and until Police misdemeanors are investigated by a totally independent group rather than their mates I doubt that they will aspire to the standards that are expected of them
So in the meantime I will have a good moan and watch this great country of mine continue to slide at a reckless pace into the gutter where the lowest forms of human life reside
