As the tawdry goings on in Westminster begin to recede into the distance, it is nice to know that we are not the only country afflicted with corrupt politicians.
“Germany’s Social Democrat health minister [Ulla Schmidt] came under pressure on Sunday to explain why she took her official limousine, complete with chauffeur, on holiday to Spain where the vehicle was stolen.”
That’s going to take some explaining!
It would be easy at this point to make some easy philosophical point about the fact that the political system lends itself to corruption, and how taxpayers’ money being wasted is the third Inevitable along with Death and Taxes.
But it’s Friday.
Let’s just sit back and enjoy a good laugh.
