State of the Nation.

While austerity measures make life ever more difficult for the poor in Britain, tax avoidance and evasion by the rich and powerful is the big issue at the moment. Politicians are engaging in much mutual accusation, and HM Revenue and Customs is doing its best to hide from justified embarrassment.

Meanwhile, there have been a few more additions to the growing list of teachers, clerics, MPs, doctors, celebrities, police, etc, etc being found guilty of sex offences, mostly against minors. I think it reasonable to assume that what we’re seeing is the tip of an iceberg. Who are we supposed to trust?

I would so like to have something funny to say.
