FOR those of us who have grown up with a deep sense of what is right and what is wrong, it is strange to think that there are people chosen by us to occupy positions of trust who don’t seem to know the difference.

Whether the rules state that there are certain privileges available, it is surely patently clear to anyone with integrity that the abuse of such privileges is not only an abhorrent idea, but would leave one with a perpetual feeling of guilt.

What is even more distressing is the obvious lack of empathy for ordinary people who have to work so hard for their money.

Those who are taking with impunity what does not rightfully belong to them are not only indulging in outright theft.

But what is even more disturbing is the fact that these very same people have been given the power to make vital decisions on behalf of all of us and that of our country.
