Huhne in another context

Whether Chris Huhne tried to pass the buck or not, his saga reveals the contortions to which citizens can be driven to escape the tentacles of a system that values the letter of the law above the spirit. Speed does not kill. It’s inappropriate speed that kills, or speed in the wrong hands. Life is about infinite variables, so one-size-fits-all is a contradiction in terms. BRAKE! would claim that freedom to exercise individual judgement based on context is a licence to drive carelessly. On the contrary, it’s a blueprint for driving with true care and attention. If pedestrians, especially children are near, let us proceed at walking pace. As a reasonable trade-off, when the road is clear, let us, within reason, drive at our own chosen speed.
