Tim Worstall: What's Going on?

Link: Tim Worstall: What's Going on?.

People often confuse law and justice. Not all laws are just. Not all justice is lawful.

Since Labour came to power, we have had a lot of law and very little justice. They have, on average, criminalised one new activity per day in office. Meanwhile, Gordon Brown has got away Scot-free (oh how we wish we were Scot-free) with more than 100,000,000 from the nation's pension funds.

If some of them go to jail over "cash for honours" corruption, that will be an unusual, but happy, combination of law and justice. Those who live by the sword, shall perish by the sword.

I would like to see them do the perp walk conga style, led to a "fourth way" in politics (the way to gaol) by the man who led them to the third.
