Can You Imagine Working For A Company

Recommended Posts

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little over 500 employees, yet 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

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 drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is? :huh::huh:

They are members of the British Houses of Parliament, that's the same group that produces hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in check.

They should introduce Criminal Records Checks. :rolleyes:

A simple fact check is all that's needed...

'MPs in corruption shocker':

http://commentisfree.guardian.co.uk/philip...on_shocker.html

This email doesn't reveal the hypocrisy of British politicians -- but it tells us a lot about the naivety of many voters.

It originated in 1999 in the US, on a libertarian website called Capitol Hill Blue -- the giveaway is the "little over 500", the size of the US House and Senate combined -- and similar variants have previously been found in Canada and India. The claims weren't true in the US and they are certainly not true in the UK. If we were concerned about accuracy, most of the figures would read zero. There may be one or two MPs with bad credit (given how easy it is to get a bad credit rating), and no doubt a handful have been "accused" of things in their time (who hasn't?), but the rest is just fiction.

I got this e-mail once, only it said it was the US Congress. And acording to snopes, it goes back to 1999.
