  • Legal Beagle: The law may be that stupid,

    The reality is that John Banks has made great pains to push the Christian aspect of his upbringing in all his struggles to success.
    As such he can't rely on the moral aspect of this series of incidents being different from the legal in this case.

    That he has possibly behaved in a corrupting manner from a moral point of view is definitely out there and one must ask, for what is the purpose of ethics and honesty in public life if to avoid this very type of situation.

    As a professed Christian he is doubly dammed and the longer this plays out the more damage he does to his own witness and to others too.
    It sadly reinforces in the public eye that politicians aren't to be trusted no matter their moral underpinnings.
