There is little in this world more gratifying than seeing a bad man get his comeuppance. The pleasure of seeing somebody brought low after repeatedly “getting away with murder” is better for the human body and soul than vegetables and religion. But for the past few years, consequences haven’t really felt as if they’ve been on the cards for a lot of prominent people.

Bad men don’t really get their comeuppance any more. They get book deals, or a TV show, or elected prime minister. Bad men get rich.
