Corruption goes hand in hand with Capitalism... If it is not Capitalism Corruption it is manipulation of money ....Call it what you will... But the main thing involved is money...
It will never be stopped as those with more power have more of the say ...That is proof of the extreme wealth gap that is now .... and widened over the past 25 years
Why is it that Energy bosses and Bankers and the like get away with what they do.... the regulator announces to have an inquiry taking months or years with no effective outcome and another report of miss doings comes along and another inquiry repeats it`s self..... etc...
The bottom line is more and more people in high places are getting very wealthy, but not by hard sweat and toll, but manipulation of money and company assets and share allocations....Then Loopholes and tax avoidance.... basically legal corruption that the government refuse to stop or closedown loopholes etc...
That is how I see it, and there is probably only half of what is going on that is known to the general public..... as new reports and are coming to light every year.... MPs allowances a couple of years ago means MPs are open to doing things they should not... so how can you rely on... or trust.
If voting does not stop loopholes and money manipulation then... One can question why the need or the effort to vote at all... if what you want changed, is not always on the voting agenda to start with.
All this said the UK is not so bad as a package compared to some other countries.... as we all well know.... but it does appear to be get worse...
That`s my pennies worth... Keep smiling all... Enjoy the warm weekend.

sorry , but there are plenty of recent cases about whistleblowers and how free we are here and US , i'd of thought that i'd not need to find evidence of my point on such a subject . when it comes to which is the worse country for corruption , i'm not living in there countries and how they handle there problems is there business , i'm more bothered about the corruption here in UK . except clips from nutters on YouTube , who bill hicks ? he's was a nutter ? wow a lot would differ with you . I don't back up things I post on or any facts , ok . so I've not posted the numbers of Russian banks before on here of banks getting licences being revoked in the past , or that recent news on China shows not a good place to commit crime and get away with it , evidence has been in the news . i take note of your post and will be very careful when i post and what i post and try get more evidence to post .
