I was recently chatting with a good friend who has links with the House of Commons. We discussed the possibility of him standing as an MP.......however as we discussed the situation further, it was evident that whatever his passion or his beliefs or his wholehearted enthusiasm to change or reform, at this time UK politics has very few friends and very little credibility.
These are interesting statistics below:
Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600 employees and has the following employee statistics?
29 have been accused of spouse abuse.
7 have been arrested for fraud.
9 have been accused of writing bad cheques.
17 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses.
3 have done time for assault.
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit.
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges.
8 have been arrested for shoplifting.
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits.
84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year.
Which organization is this?
It's the 635 members of the House of Commons, the same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us inline.
What a bunch we have running our country - it says it all. And just to top all that they have the best 'corporate' pension scheme in the country.
It is staggering that 84 MP's have been arrested for drink driving in the last year.
Are these role models?
Are these people we should respect?
