Ethics & Integrity. Good value?

There is a simple but powerful truth that effective government requires a first-rate workforce with a well-developed sense of right and wrong. Most importantly, it requires people who are more concerned about the public good than personal gain. Public service is an opportunity to raise the standards for country, community, family, and fellow citizens; to make peoples’ lives better and their futures brighter.

Three core values are mandatory: accountability, integrity, and reliability. There are many recent examples in the private sector that show what happens when individuals and institutions lack or stray from these key values. Which organisation could it be therefore that, with only a little over 600 employees, 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
• and this year alone, cost the British tax payer £92,993,748 in expenses. 

Which organization is this?

Yes of course, 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 inline – most of it now simply rubber stamping instructions from Brussels.

What a collection of largely morally bankrupt, uninspiringly vapid, manipulative, self-discredited, deceptive, unprincipled, serially dishonoured, and criminal time-wasters we have “running” our country. And just to top all that, they have a gold-plated, inflation proofed, tax payer funded pension scheme that is unaffordable to all those tax payers who fund it.

This is an appalling state of affairs and deeply embarrassing to the few MP’s who have retained their integrity and to all other citizens of the UK. We simply do not want or need these people.

If you agree with these sentiments, then recognise that you are a Libertarian, share the shameful details above with all your friends, and exercise every one of your democratic means (while you still have some) to promote change!
