Political realism

“Of course we are completely committed to shaking our fists at bankers and saying ‘grrrrr’ at those exploiting tax loopholes, but as far as taking any action goes, well, it’s far easier to punish those who can’t fight back.”
“I’ve never understood why people say you shouldn’t not mocking the afflicted – they’re the only ones you should mock.  It’s the physically and financially superior ones you should leave alone.  They’ll kick your arse.”

explained Chris Grayling (allegedly, according to News Thump).
