If that's hypocrisy, let's have plenty more of it please

It’s a popular story in the media today that Nick Clegg is a hypocrite for having benefited from a cosy internship arrangement of the sort that he now wants to end.

Well, if wanting to change something you’ve benefited from, or stop something you’ve done, means you are a hypocrite, it also means…

You are a hypocrite if you once caused a traffic accident and now are a campaigner for road safety.

You are a hypocrite if you benefited from working your way round complicated tax paperwork but now think it should be changed to make it easier for everyone.

You are a hypocrite if you heard about a job opportunity on the grapevine but now want more jobs advertised to everyone.

You are a hypocrite if you once drunk yourself into hospital and now warn others off drink.

You are a hypocrite if you once were a criminal and now urge others to avoid crime.

And if that’s hypocrisy, let’s have plenty more of it please.
