Canadian Parliament

#1
I had this sent to me at work....

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 300 employees and has the following statistics:
30 have been accused of spousal abuse.
9 have been arrested for fraud, 14 have been accused of writing bad cheques.
95 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses.
4 have done time for assault.
55 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit.
12 have been arrested on drug related charges.
4 have been arrested for shoplifting.
16 are currently defendants in lawsuits.
62 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year.
Can you guess which organization this is?
It is the 301 MP's in the Canadian Parliament. The same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
Which one did you vote for?
TAKEN FROM THE OTTAWA CITIZEN.

Bloody Hell! 8O Sounds like the disciplinary record of your average Service Battlalion :D

Semper - Why didn't you include this on your "proud to be Canadian" thread? :twisted:

Christ I thought Australian pollies were a bunch of low life but the Canadians are in a league of their own.

Is that a recently updated list? I remember reading something similar a few years back.

Wow. This calls for some serious research on the UK crew. And if you're really serious, let's have a survey of the European Parliament...

Try with the EU Parliament? No chance. Remeber the fuss a few months ago when a UK MEP raised the previous convictions of a French MEP, in the E Parliament? Turns out the Frogs have a law preventing such disclosure.

But they would, wouldn't they!

With the Gomery Commission currently investigating the Government's ' misappropriation of funds ' and the resultant fallout threatening to topple the Liberal Government any day now..I'm of the opinion that those issues are 'small potatoes' when compared to what's been going on behind the closed doors of the power elite...

RC Sigs - I cannot authenticate the date, and not being fully familiar with your current crop of politico's I couldn't guess at its authenticity, however, why let facts get in the way of a good story! :)

Rocketeer - I am sure that the Gomery Report will add lustre to the above list :roll:

As Whiskeybreath alludes to, British MP's would probably not stand up to close scrutiny. Although it is so easy to verbally kick the cr@p out of British MP's that I thought I would bring in some fresh meat.

Don't worry, I have no doubt as to it's validity, just wondering if it had been updated :lol:

There was a similar list circulating for the US Congress, more than 50% had been prosecuted for something.

Good Post Not_Whislin_Dixie,

This is pretty low even for a congressman :evil:

· Wes Cooley, the Oregon Congressman who lied about serving in the Korean War, quit Congress under a cloud in 1996, and was later convicted of falsifying VA loan applications.
I hope that he dropped the soap in the prison showers and Bubba was out of vasaline :twisted:

At least British politicians provide some entertainment with sleazy activities involving auto-erotic asphyxiation 8O and shagging a prostitute whilst wearing a Chelsea FC jersey. :)
