Everything Has Its Price

This is a decision that I fully understand, but which nevertheless leaves me feeling grubby. I am off to wash my hands - but that's been done before hasn't it?

I am reminded of the old story of the man who asked his girlfriend if she would sleep with him for a million pounds. After a few moments, she replied that she would. "How about twenty pounds?" he enquired. "What do you take me for?" she expostulated. "We have established that" he replied. "We are now haggling over the fee".

"No weight has been given to commercial interests or to the national economic interest," he (Lord Goldsmith) added.

Yeah- right. Never forget the golden rule. The man with the gold makes the rules.
