A great company to work for.

My thanks again to the resident that sent this into me.
Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics?
  • 29 have been accused of spouse abuse
  • 7 have been arrested for fraud
  • 19 have been accused of writing bad cheques
  • 117 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
  • 4 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 is the US Congress!! Seems they are getting similar flak to our House of Commons.

I must make it crystal clear that, despite the appalling press some members of parliament are getting, our MP Gerald Howarth is a fine upstanding member, and has my full support. I think Parliament needs scrutinising by an independent body and needs to change to represent a modern society. In local Government we have become accustom to change imposed from Parliament, which ironically is extremely slow to change and adapt. In this respect it could learn much from local Councils.
