I was cooking breakfast this morning for my kids, and I thought, 'He is just like a Teflon frying pan: Nothing sticks to him.
What we want is a moral revolution, not one that people associate with street riots and the disorganisation of life. A transformation of attitudes that will introduce a normal, moral order in the functioning of the state. An order whereby honesty is a positive value, and dishonesty a negative one.
