Let's stand back from the continuing furore for a moment and reflect on what our political leaders have said on the subject,
" " David Cameron
" " Nick Clegg
That is just an astonishing abdication of leadership promulgated I have no doubt, by pointy headed PPE policy wonks, Australian and American media guru's and Boss-suited electoral consultants. You can hear them now, "Well, best to say and do nothing in case you are tainted politically in the minds of the swing voter in the key marginals just by being on the same news segment. We'll get you on Marr this Sunday and you can do the reflective, mature statesman thing....................."
I'm afraid gentlemen, it won't do. It won't do at all
One more thought. The media are on their traditional witchhunt for the odd responsible individual to resign. My more radical contention, (see below), is that central government needs to sweep in and take over with the sort of special measures to reform and rebuild that are successfully applied to schools. The scale of the cover up however, has been so vast that I can't help but wonder if organised crime might be sitting behind some of this. I'd mostly be sending the National Crime Agency up there to have a look see....... just in case.
