A Tory spokesmen bemoaned the fact that too many substandard scandals which did not merit higher grade media attention were allowing lightweights to progress in their political careers. ‘Look, not everyone is capable of top level deception and bare-faced arrogance and the sooner we accept that there will always be winners and losers in the real world then the sooner Britain and my family can be prosperous,’ he said.
