This donations fuss really is beginning to get old very quickly indeed. I am fairly convinced that we have better and more important things to be devoting so much of our public discourse to.
Yes, we should expect a high level of probity from our public officials. We should expect that they follow the both the letter and the spirit of the law. However, I'd like to think that we could also expect better than name calling and the somewhat disingenuous accusations of incompetence. And more to the point we should expect that our politicians rise above cheap points scoring and either agree to sort out the problem with a set of clear, concise and workable laws or get in someone else to do it for them so that we can get back to talking about anything that might actually impact on people outwith politics.
