Corruption, Corruption - Fish Rot From The Head.
Do you suppose that the welter of corruption headlines lately could be related to the example being set by out elected and unelected representatives in Parliament?
After all fish rot from the head.
As well the the Westminster Gravy Train, Cash For Honours, Dodgy Donations, Amazingly Short Sentences For Muslim Peer, Legislation For Sale, we now find that a head teacher at some flagship school in Brent has been suspended over allegations of million pound bonus fraud.
Naturally they tried to silence the whistleblower.
Equally naturally, it seems that there's a whiff of Africa and India about this. The bursar Columbus Udokoro is also suspended, and the head of the governors is a Dr. I P Patel. I wonder if he's a friend of Keith Vaz?
I'm pretty sure I deleted a load of emails from Columbus Udokoro the other year, all of them offering me an amazing deal if I just helped him getting some money out of Nigeria. Or it may have been a very similar name.
Still, it's very reassuring to know that Ed Balls in on the case.
