Here, from 1990, is how lobbyists used to be treated by politicians if they even dared to solicit private meetings and/or attempt to subvert democratic process.
Sadly, the modern political class is bereft of such integrity. All we have governing us now are a collection of arrogant, posturing liars, thieves and fraudsters led by a snake oil salesman.
In other news, election turnouts have never been lower. Go figure.
