The fact that my statement begins with the word 'translated' intigates that the following sentence were not my opinion rather it was my interpretation of oggy's initial remarks.
FF are scumbags and they know it. FG are scumbags yet they think they're morally superior and a better "class" of people.
No, neither are "scumbags". There are many fine people in both groups, but the leaderships are interested in quantity rather than quality, expediency rather than conviction. They don't set trends, they just lazily follow them.
It's just the way politics is done here, however unsustainable in the long term as society settles for bland mediocrity. But there does come a tipping point.
