I am listening to the hon. Gentleman's remarks with care and agree with much of what he says. Does he believe that hon. Members are now less honourable than they were in years gone by? Does he feel that the failure of Ministers to resign when they have done wrong—they now have to be forced to resign—is also an indication that we now have career politicians rather than Members who come here to serve the people of their constituencies and the country?
