A sudden fit of morality

I confess that I do not understand all this fuss about an English footballer's affair with an underwear model. Is that not what modern footballers do, along with wasting their easy-earned pennies on swish cars and inappropriate mansions?

It's not as though similar sinners in other trades and professions are immediately cast into the pit of outer darkness. Neither John Major nor Robin Cook suffered undue opprobrium (amazement yes); while Antonia Fraser appears to boast about it. And that judge that had it away with his cleaner is still, as far as I am aware, a judge. Even journalists have been known to play away from home, but that does not prevent them from subsequently becoming Mayor of London.

All very curious ...
