And thus by your logic this woman has done nothing wrong :huh:

'Why shouldn't she have accepted it?'

Its got absolutely nothing to do with wrong or right. We don't have a society where a crime is based on what people think is morally right or wrong, but one based on laws/rules. If we had one based on morals all of our most senior bankers, recent past and present, would now be spending 10-20 years behind bars.

Under that law based crime system she has done zero wrong, she was given a way to spend money with zero stipulations attached, for example the stipulation that she'd have to pay it back. Ergo she has committed no crime, ergo she cannot be punished for it.

And yes what she has done is morally wrong, but that is completely different to breaking the law.

I'd also like to ask if in the world of business we only go by what is lawful or non-lawful, (indeed they break company law if they do otherwise such as make moral based jusdgements) why is the same not ok for the general population, why do you seek to impose double/higher standards on the general population?

No no only Fred Goodwin et all can't be convicted of moral crimes, only the proles.
