I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Not necessarily corrupt. Just ordinary people, like us, in an 'extraordinary' job trying to make sense of it, survive, do their best, look after number one,... - all those things we all do (good and bad). Some of them are more vulnerable to 'corruption' than others, and I suppose too many put service to party ahead of service to people.

It's easy to be cynical, but I think 'we' isn't necessarily so innappropriate because 'we' are all part of this society/culture and 'we' all have a responsiblity in making our society/culture what it is. Lumping all the blame on the politicians in the end is just scapegoating - not to say they don't need a good kicking every so often to remind them of their place! ;-)
