HP p325 (not much of a spoiler)

Half Blood Prince. I found the political undertones of this paragraph very interesting. To be honest you can read it without spoiling any of the plot or emotional impact of the book.

'Some people would say it was your duty to be used by the Ministry!'

'Yeah, and others might say it's your duty to check people really are Death Eaters before you chuck them in prison,' said Harry, his temper rising.'... You never get it right, you people, do you? Either we've got Fudge, pretending everything's lovely while people get murdered right under his nose, or we've got you, chucking the wrong people into jail, and trying to pretend you've got the Chosen One working for you!'
