Marching Orde-rs

Apparently the PSNI Chief Constable Hugh Orde has been getting his end away with an English detective while his wife wasn't watching. We only know this because he's fathered a lovechild.

He's said it's a personal and private affair which doesn't affect his ability to do the job. But he's cheated on his wife - the woman he promised to "cleave to, forsaking all others". That's a more serious oath than any promise he's made the people of Northern Ireland, and he's broken it. How can we be expected to trust him?

Even more sickly, he says his family is supporting him. Sorry, but I don't swallow that one. Any wife would be boiling, surely. So is he a liar as well as a cheater?

Sorry, Hugh, but it's time for you to go. In the wonderful words of Douglas Adams' departing dolphins, "So long, and thanks for all the fish".

C'mon BU it was 22 years ago, let him who has not sinned cast the first stone and all that eh. Besides how anyone can link it to his proffesional life is beyond me.

As far as lying, most of us do it on a regular basis. From "Honest doll yir erse disnae loog gimungous in that" to "She's a lovely wee baby isn't she" Some are for your own health, others are to be polite. Sadly many are to cover up transgressions that are probably best left buried
