"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Could we fall much lower?

Take a look at this, received from T.K. today. Makes you think!
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 organisation is this ?
It's the 635 members of the House of Commons, the same group that creates
hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.
What a bunch we have running our country - it says it all.
And
just to top all that they probably have the best 'corporate' pension scheme
in the country!!
Where's our Mr Cromwell we need a Revolution....

Gah! Well, you know what they say .. power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely!

I thought you were going to say those were average statistics for every business everywhere, and I have to say there's a sense of relief that this isn't so!

I am amazed. What a load of criminals.

It's so sad. The first six or seven years under Blair were like a breath of fresh air for Britain. Now they have let it all go stale. They have let us down and there's that smarmy pot-smoking tosser called Cameron waiting in the wings like a wolf in sheep's clothing. I could weep.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
I am shocked by these statistics. I would have thought that to be selected as a parliamentary candidate that they would need to be whiter than white.

No doubt Blair is laughing his socks off now, YP.
Me too, Cheshire Wife. Thanks for visiting.

'The first six or seven years under Blair were like a breath of fresh air for Britain'

yes, the mass pointless murder and slaughter of iraq and aghanistan really gives you lefties a warm feeling inside doesn't it? For me fresh air doesn't smell of war and death but different strokes for different folks

I have to agree, Arthur.
