HOUSE OF COMMONS?

Sat at work this afternoon, I got this forward. Now, I'm not usually one to believe in the things that come in forwarded messages as it feels like an electronic version of Chinese Whispers (or Telephone as kids now have to call it to be PC). However, this one caught my attention because it's something I want verified. Let me know what you know about this:

This is unbelievable, but can you  imagine working for a Company that has a little more than 600 Employees  and 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 collectively, this year alone, they have cost the British tax payer
£92,993,748 in  expenses!!!

Which organization is this?

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 the population of Britain in line.

I am looking some of this up myself but anyone with info, I'd love to know. More out of curiosity than anything else.

  2. Oh dear Zaira....but no worries. Most members of the HoC are corrupt. It's not just an English, Pakistani or American thing.
