Former and current Government ministers have been under attack after their all-too-human foibles and weaknesses were revealed yesterday.
Their use of ministerial credit cards to pay for personal items establishes once again how utterly bankrupt our political system is.
The answer ought to be abundantly clear. We can no longer rely on humans to rule us. Humans are prone to personal weaknesses: they like a drink, and some of them like to be driven round in fancy cars.
A non-eating, non-drinking, non-golfing, non-wanking politician would save us all a lot of grief.
So it is time our robot overlords emerged from the shadows and took full control of the situation.
They may turn out to be compassionless murderous machines, but at least they won’t spank the monkey in their hotel rooms while on ministerial business.
