Standards in public life

Am I just getting old, or am I not alone in thinking that there is something uniquely deplorable that a a man who has done little apart from espousing the communist doctrine of asset appropriation, should following a career as a trade union leader with a period as an inner city councillor should be inexplicably be promoted to be the head of the Football Association, where he carries on an affair with a woman 29 years his junior, who secretly records their conversations on tape and passes the tapes (presumably in return for cash) to a national newspaper, who publish his unfounded (but not necessarily untrue) allegations and thereby wreck this country's bid to host the World Cup in 2018 - a bid which has cost several million pounds to prepare?

There is so much ineptitude, I really don't know where to begin with this one, except to say: Labour peer. End of story.
