More Metacynicism

I understand that some people might not want their lad held accountable for what he did, and I can imagine thinking that it wasn’t so bad, or that the other guys do just as bad or worse, and I can imagine worrying that the other side will do horrible things if we don’t fend them off somehow. But I can’t understand having watched the daily press conferences, having heard the daily news, having heard the Prime Minister speak to Parliament with solemn asseverations, and still not think that he knowingly misled the other MPs (or at least tried to).

This represents metacynicism and hypernihilism of the highest degree. I’m happy for someone to bring forward evidence to the contrary — but nothing in the former PM’s defence case comes even near to dispelling my impression.
