Reader’s comment: They’ll carry on regardless


In response to Melanie Platt: Jeremy and Shami can’t both be right – one of them must go, paul parmenter wrote:

Who is to step down?

Let me try to guess. When was the last time any politician voluntarily stepped out of a position of well-paid privilege and power on a point of honour, without being pushed and without using their contacts to ease themselves quietly back in again a short while after, once the dust had settled and everyone was looking the other way?

Since I am struggling to remember, and neither Chakrabarti nor Corbyn have displayed any awareness of what a point of honour might involve, I will stick with the assumption that neither of them will see any reason whatsoever to do anything other than carry on as before; probably while hiding under a cloak of injured innocence.
