“At a time when there is much irritation about the functioning of the political process, in this lecture I want to canvass the difficulty of judging politicians through the lens of integrity because of the layers of responsibility they have and the complexity of many of the issues with which they have to deal. In any particular circumstance the answer to the question, what is the right thing to do, depends on judgements about what interest they are supposed to serve and what policy choices they actually have. How a person of integrity should act is dependent on the nature of the questions faced and in whose or what interest he or she should be acting. Where does the politician’s duty lie? ”
