The Independent Culture
Sir: Hillary Clinton explains her husband's sordid philanderings as "bimbo eruptions" caused by abuse he suffered at the age of four. Ron Davies claims his adventures on Clapham Common were "risk-seeking impulses" brought about by a violent father. This Oprah Winfreyesque gibberish speaks volumes about the cult of the victim at the heart of our increasingly infantilised culture. All this moral buck-passing almost makes one nostalgic for the church.
