Anyone of my vintage knows that in the days of, say, Profumo, one resigned – wrongdoers were prosecuted, at least far more than today.
Perhaps one reason today why it has changed is sheer numbers who need to go to prison – it is in the millions of people. We could take any example from any western nation, let’s take this one for example:
Maybe a bit over half the people in any of those nations is expecting and waiting for the charging of those people, DJT was elected specifically to drain that swamp – they still have not been prosecuted and sent to prison.
Why is there so much noise from our side, ra ra ra, the perps are going down … and then they don’t. All talk of prosecution just dies away.
