If you might recall, few weeks ago we discussed how when non-western states conduct themselves inappropriately the references to their behaviours are ‘negatively’ labelled for ‘what they might have be’, for example, Corruption, is Corruption with a Capital C, and so forth, and when the western democracies do the same, we have all these ‘adorable folkish references’ managed and produced by PR Teams, as Corruption becomes Fraud, or as more recently, with Liam Fox and Adam Werrity Case, it becomes ”Misconduct”!
Anyway, we are not going to spend a lot on these just to point out these facts is enough for readers; from Bernie Eccelestone and Blair, to BAE Systems and Saudis, to Murdoch and Governments, BP and US Government and so forth, corruption is ‘back in trend’ in political life of the western societies, just look at the MP Expenses Scandal and US cases going on right at the present in Congress from Lobbyists and Washington, to Revolving Door Problems and so forth, but still we are told, it is not Corruption, ….it is not a Broken System…It is not Epidemic… and in short, ”It is not as bad as others”, WOW!!
The ‘others’, at least, have independent outsiders as investigative and watchdog parties, brought in to look on such crimes, but here in UK we leave these to insiders, the great Mandarin, the Guardians of the System, and this one, of the Fox-Werrity Affair is in the hands of GOD (i.e. the senior gatekeeper of British Government, Sir Gus O’ Donnell, hence, G.O.D.)–you guess it, as all pass Mandarins directed investigations only ”recommendations on fixing a little broken system will be presented” but not the how, the why, the depth and so forth of the crime and issues.
Anyway, I will leave it here, and I hope you all have a good weekend, see some selected headlines below:
From Strauss-Kahn as a serial rapist (as I have always contend he was) to fox affairs, US politics, the Iran Conspiracy, the Libyan New Civil War (‘rebels’ against ‘rebels’, as I contended once) and so forth
