I'm not sure Sharpe realizes this, his garbled use of language does not show much ability for self-reflection. But I'm sure others do. Wessely is the skilled political operator and he understands the value of pretending to stand for something he does not. Sharpe is making the whole lot look awful by association. He is a cruel, vindictive man and that will cause them all much pain in the end. Their contempt is much too obvious.
