It’s a hard life

Well no, no it’s not. Bankers who feel sorry for themselves are a bit like politicians who make moral judgements or newspaper columnists who complain about people being overpaid: hypocrisy crystallised.

That said, it does make you wonder how much of the fervent politician hatred that we’ve experienced since the expenses furore is driven by hard facts, and how much is just, well, our love of outrage. I’d continue with the same theme about newspaper columnists, but this area of potential injustice appears surprisingly under-reported.

Facts, alas, are in short supply. I could pretend I’m trying to bring facts to the debate – but really, it’s just my opinion. But at least I don’t confuse the two.
