Reaction To Vaz Revelations Paints Bleak Political Future

As always, it is the voting public that come out as the real losers. Our ever-changing set of moral values has, in 2016, determined Keith’s (entirely legal) behaviour to be a disqualification from public office… far worse, of course, than having sex with a dead animal’s head, and worse than Boris Johnson’s string of affairs with multiple women, resulting in the birth of an illegitimate child. Vaz resigns as Select Committee chair, and we consign another high-IQ, complex, interesting, and highly articulate public figure to the scrapheap. All this, of course, leads us ever more surely towards the collection of lobotomised, anaemic politicians we deserve: submissive, boring, uninspired, and unwilling to takes risks and push boundaries.
