- Bent coppers !
I’m resigning but I’ve done nowt wrong?
It used to be the case that people in high office resigned when there were cock-ups on there watch, whether or not they were directly responsible. With high office/wages, came great responsibility – allegedly.
It has become extremely rare these days. The last notable case for me was Lord Carrington who resigned after Argentina invaded the Falklands. He then became Secretary General of NATO ! ……so it wasn’t all bad then.Posted 6 years ago

his pension will be a lump sum equal to 4 times his gross salary at time of leaving plus an annual sum of approx 65% of his annual salary or he could take a larger lump sum and smaller annual payments or he can take the lump sum and defer some or all of his annual paymanets either way he aint going to be going to the sally army looking for a roof over his head or a bowl of soup.Posted 6 years agoduntstickMember
I think we should have a huge public enquiry, costing the tax-payer millions, spread out over a long period of time, headed up by puppets (job’s for the boys) who don’t ask relevant questions.
Then let them make a statement, saying lesson’s learned and all that, maybe an apology or two here and there.
Seemed to work out OK for the last lot.Posted 6 years agoBerm BanditMember
Given the high level of bullingdon club involvement in this latest resignation, one could be forgiven for suspecting that the copper has been used as a buffer for Dave.
Regarding corruption, anytime you expect a greater degree of morality from your public servants than from the public they serve you are setting yourself up for a fall. Therefore these things should be structurally prevented, i.e the system is self regulating. Expenses supported by receipts style, personal gratuities entirely verboten, so no argument if one is taken you are fired, sort of thing. It needs to be expected that some people will be corrupt, rather than hands be thrown up in horror when it transpires that some are.Posted 6 years ago
