We each exercise our charm and wile to convince our customers to pay us or vote for us, for we’re in competition with others who can provide the same services. And we’ll both do just about anything, as long as the price is right. Frankly, I think it’s a damned slur against the tarts to consign them to the social rubbish heap just for earning a living while praising the politicos as selfless public servants. At least bints aren’t hypocritical: you’ll never hear one of them blathering on sanctimoniously that they do what they do for the benefit of the British public.
