The public have never been so far removed from the world of the political class, have never been more cynical about politicians and their dags, and have never been more disillusioned about standards of probity in Parliament.I should explain that a dag is a faeces-caked lump of wool that hangs from a sheep's bottom. They often get fly-blown and develop maggots, so are not a good thing. I suppose hangers-on is a politer expression.
Right. Carry on.
