Nothing new under the sun.

The present furore over Liam Fox, and the conclusions being drawn by many reminds me of a similar scandal, featuring a high profile liberal politician from 35 years ago. The scandal spawned a joke at the time which will go over the heads of anyone too young to remember.

Q. What is the similarity between Jeremy Thorpe and William the conqueror?
A. They were both fucking Normans.
