Remember our explanation of “The Club“, that part of the world you and I can’t visit, where good things always happen to the members?
When you’re in The Club, other members of The Club will plant sympathetic stories in the press on your behalf, such as this one (paywall).
Obviously Lord David Steel is the victim here, not the vulnerable young children he suspected this sweaty fat bastard was sexually abusing:
That’s right, David Steel, who by his own admission had strong suspicions Smith was abusing children and didn’t mention to anyone, might be expelled from a political party from which he retired over a decade ago as punishment.
Yet some of his friends think it’s worth planting sympathetic stories to prevent this minor and inconsequential slap on the wrists.
When you’re in The Club, you never need to feel shame or regret for past actions; the greater good and your inherent righteousness balance out any minor transgressions you may have made, obviously.
Your actions don’t have consequences, your failures are forgotten, your errors are forgiven. It’s a great club!
40+ years in opposition. What an utter waste of carbon, oxygen and water.
