Moral Compass, Democracy and Banking in UK

on July 1, 2012

My mate Boris who lives in Russia asked me how Britain’s superior democracy generated the same problems as Russia.

He said you seem to have institutionalised racism in the police,  greedy and corrupt banks, all-powerful media owners who can lean on politicians and the police,  just as they do in Russia.

Yes, perhaps not a time for us to be preaching to others but it left me wondering who holds the moral compass for our country.  I imagined it was the politicians , but they seem powerless or preoccupied with other priorities – like getting elected maybe.
