Boris Stays

Posted by rantingkraut on April 4, 2006

David Cameron seems to be doing the right thing for a change, according to the BBC: “Boris Johnson will not be sacked from the Tory frontbench over allegations he had an affair, David Cameron has said.” It is nice to see a refusal to be distracted from politics by a politician’s private life. Reminds me of this bit in Jamie Whyte’s “A load of Blair“:

“Any system that depends on the superior morality of its participants is poorly designed. A well-run army does not require heroic soldiers, and a well-structured polity dos not require honest politicians. Political deceit should be so readily discovered and punished that even the most conniving politician becomes utterly trustworthy.”
