Can you guess who it is yet?

Another hard day in the House of Commons

An interesting email arrives at TheGodTF Towers:

Can you imagine working for a company that only has a little more than 635 employees, but, 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 two 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.

AND

Collectively, this year alone, they have cost the British tax payer £92,993,748 in expenses.

Which Organisation 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 in line.

And just to top all that, they probably have the best ‘corporate’ Pension scheme in the country.

If you agree that this is an appalling state of affairs please pass it on to everyone you know.

It’s always good to know that we’re ruled by quality people, who deserve our obedience.

    Really?

    If true, this would be significant, but if this information is in the public domain I’d like to see some footnotes, with names named.

    Until then I’ll assume it’s utter bollocks, like most such emails, especially since there are 650 MPs.

    This e-mail apparently did the rounds early in 2006 and was adapted from
    an American original – at least so says the Guardian (??!!) in an article
    dated 20.3.06 by one Philip Cowley that claimed the contents to be ‘cobblers’.

    As Andy comments however, it most certainly would not be a shock to discover
    the stated figures were in the ballpark. The considerably higher level of criminality
    amongst those comprising ruling elites (in comparison to the levels evident within
    its subject population) is, at least so far as I am concerned, a well established
    ‘matter of fact’, with the level and nature the of criminality displayed having a direct
    correlation to the degree to which power has been concentrated upwards. The more
    greater the concentration of power, the bigger and the more vicious the criminality.

    This understanding is one of the many, many reasons for diluting power as much
    as is possible. Personally, I regard all l large scale institutions to be inherently immoral
    and corrupt.

    For a thorough examination of the subject, I would recommend reading ‘Power & Morality’
    by Sorokin & Lunden. If you don’t believe the above noted correlation, then the book
    might convince you otherwise, and if you already are a believer there’s evidence
    applently on which to feast !!!

    How now seen my comment posted, I feel obliged to apologise for the
    very shoddy proof reading.
