    What is it about the British government that attracts so many pedophiles and sex offenders? Or, more disturbingly, are the brits just better at catching it than us?

      Oh man... that last sentence really messed me up.

      Some conspiracists say that political parties have purposefully given significant positions to individuals with powerful dirt on them that can be given out to the media if the party so wishes. Blackmail fodder essentially. This assists with matters of whipping for matters the individual might disagree on. At least that's less concerning/more plausible than saying they're all fucking freemasons and shag kids out of some kind of occult purpose.

        Maybe people with the psychopathic tendencies that make them compelling leaders often suffer from a lack of empathy required to appreciate what they're taking from others for their own gain?

        They probably don't think very much about whom they're hurting, as long as it doesn't mess with the meal ticket.

          It's not only tendencies. They are psychopaths, and therefore genuinely don't care at all what happens to anyone else.

          Also, the only use case for political power is (for someone) to benefit at other people's expense - otherwise you'd just let people do business and trade as they please.

          What's a "leader" anyway? We call them politicians, leaders, policymakers, officials, authorities and regulators, but what they actually are is rulers. Strangely enough, "ruler" doesn't sound very nice.. it reminds us of Kings, Emperors and Dictators. It's just that now we have a couple of hundred rulers instead of just one.

            It's all about the phrasing. Being killed by your fellow soldiers = "friendly fire". High fructose corn syrup = "corn sugar". Invading a foreign land, slaughtering large numbers of its inhabitants and forcing them to convert to your religions and social codes = "civilization".

              Yeah, and "taxation" sure sounds better than "extortion".

              Taxes are "levied" too, as opposed to "forcefully taken from you".

              - Bail-out = Your money gifted to bankers
              - Bail-in = Your savings confiscated from your bank-account
              - Bank Holiday = Banks are closed so that you won't be able to take out your savings (to avoid losing them through confiscation or collapse in value)
              - Capital controls = You're prevented from moving your meager wealth out of the country (to avoid losing it through confiscation or collapse in value)
              - Eminent domain = We'll just confiscate your property on a whim, or whenever it's necessary to benefit our cronies

          Plus he's a peer, so he didn't really have to earn his lordship. It's easier to hide things when you don't have a 9-5 job with other people.

    ...so dementia means he isn't held accountable for his actions, but he was fit enough for his job? The logic behind that being...? This is so sad.

    Why isn’t he being prosecuted?

    Because he's part of the ruling class (that controls the "justice" system).

      This is becoming a disturbing trend. On sites like CopBlock and CrooksAndLiars, there are often stories similar to this about how someone was drunk or belligerent and someone else was hurt or killed as a result of their actions. And the assailant gets a slap on the wrist because they either are or are closely related to law enforcement or a high-level politician.
