Who's Corrupt?

Amongst all the fuss and palaver about MP's in Westminster who are 'at it' - working the system for all they're worth - and then some, here's another wee thought .... Over the last ten or eleven days, the Daily Telegraph has deliberately chosen to drip feed scandal on what is, let's remember, a small minority of the six hundred-odd MP's in Westminster. They allegedly paid a large sum of money to obtain this material illegally, so large that they dare not reveal how much - and there's no 'freedom of information act' to apply to newspapers. They have chosen, with undisguised glee, to maximise the damage that is being done to Parliament simply to sell their newspaper. So who's the most corrupt here?
Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying that our MP's are Angels - clearly some of them are not - and it's one thing to use the system they have in place - even though it clearly needs to be radically changed, but quite another to abuse it. But when push comes to shove, isn't this just a wee bit the pot calling the kettle black?
