On Wednesday, the British Minister Lord Michael Bates was late by 5 minutes to the House of Lords.

When he entered the hall, he discovered that the Council had discussed a question addressed to him during his absence.

He asked for permission to talk and said: "I feel ashamed, because I was not present to answer the question, therefore I announce my immediate resignation," and then left the hall.

A governmental post is a service for the citizens and not an honour.

This true story should be shared among all our politicians for them to understand that they are servants of the people - and that the people are the masters and mistresses. Take a lesson and learn.
