OK, I know you are not a Conservative. But Lord Acton was right in his famous quote: "Power tends to corrupt. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Most people are attracted to power and many are sycophantic those that wield it.

I also like another quote of his: "The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern."
