At first glance it may seem naive to insist on honour in politics. To speak about honour is simply to speak about dignity and respect. We are often annoyed by politician's narcissism because the grandiosity of their words is not backed up by the substance of their deeds. Yet those who care for their honour will strive to be worthy of respect and feel shame when they have done something that makes them unworthy. Those who have no shame have no honour.
