Now admittedly I saw these while -gulp- looking at the front page of the Daily Mail site, but it seemed these two disparate stories in comparison said something about the the ego and relative capacity for guilt between us regular people and the Great & the Good. Blair committed war crimes and even as he maintains his denial he costs us money that could be far better spent on the public welfare, meanwhile a smalltime fraudster is so wracked with shame, terror and guilt she and her husband kill themselves. Their crimes are really incomparable, over a million dead, billions spent, generations -some as yet unborn- damaged by war while he becomes an even multier-millionaire. She embezzled a good wedge, used her job to steal while her bank made $7.1bn profit for 2009, no one died except her and her husband, a far too severe a punishment they imposed on themselves than they deserve. The amount she stole was eclipsed in one appearance by Blair to contribute to the Chilcot pantomime. They are not really connected, not directly in any measurable way, but they are, aren’t they?
