Lawbreakers or Lawmakers???

#1
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
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
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 in line.

True or False what does it matter? They are worth lampooning!
Anyone ever thought how easy it would be to get rid of them all?
Oliver Cromwell did it!

*yawn*

'fraid this is another of those internet myths....

the same sort of statistics also do the rounds purporting to be the US politicians (cant remember whether upper or lower chamber over there).

Although highly believable - it is untrue.

Can't possible be true. The figures for fraud and spouse abuse alone must be far higher...

Sitting members of the House of Lords nicked for lying on oath to a High Court Judge about their involvement in hookers and slush money?

One I think. A Tory if memory serves?
