Guilty, maybe, but so what?

So Andy Coulson has been found guilty of phone hacking. Big deal. Our Government indulges in industrial scale hacking day and daily and has probably been doing so for decades yet its Andy Coulson who goes down.

As I said before, if our Government was subject to the same constraints, and penalties, that Andy Coulson faces, then I'd be less concerned. But they are not and I wonder, when considering the bigger picture, who represents the bigger threat to our freedom and democracy, Andy Coulson or our Government?
