Every family seems to have black sheep but some are blacker than others.

The media seems to be increasingly focusing on the wayward antics of the children of the rich and famous. I wonder if the current generation are really any worse?

Thoughts?

  1. Dr Alf may well wonder, but I would like to see this trend extended to the UK, starting with the MP’s who are still fiddling their expenses and then extending to corrupt officials, local authority apparachiks and politicians wherever they are.
    Certainly there should be periodic, unannounced spot checks on the bank accounts of these people and their wives, children, partners, mistresses and relatives plus companies and partnerships they own/have an interest in.
    If people are honest then fine but if not they need to face justice and go to prison.
