More like partners in crime.
Just look at their bank accounts before and after leaving office.
When Her Majesty’s police selectively catch one in the act, they always end up getting paid out one way of the other (see Mulroney).
Would that the former employees of the international firms taking over and operating previously successful companies with funny money got the same. Lifelong workers had their retirements and positions slashed, while our representatives loaded up and made sure they were set - in the dead of night - behind everyone’s back.
Some of them say openly that they never lose the opportunity in a crisis - but it seems the opportunity for our business and political class has been to rob the public coffers blind and knife us in our backs.
