Why do people in power act just as goofily as the rest of us and never learn from history. I have a sense of deja vue with Tony and his cronies. This government is showing the same symptoms of malaise and decay as John Major’s last Conservative government.
Whatever the real truth of Tessa’s relationship with husband David Mills, it certainly is complicated and his financial dealings are Byzantine. It all reeks of sleaze and corruption, even supposing there was nothing untoward.
And yet it does look like an endurance time trial. If the press can keep it going long enough and there is nothing better to get their fangs into, then Tessa will go. Nothing will actually ever be proved.
