The coming UK election will not be fought on the merits of each party's manifestos but by slagging off the leaders of the parties and by attempting to persuade the electorate that one or more of the party leaders "cannot be trusted." "Do as you would be done by" will not come into it. Good manners will not come into it. Those who once claimed the moral high ground will be the ones who act most immorally. And why not? This is what we have come to. This is what people want. This will be reality TV at its finest. At last, we will all be equal in the sight of God.
