Anyone Know if this is True?

This is unbelievable, but true!



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



Which organisation 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 us inline.

What a bunch of b*****ds we have running our country - it says it all. And just to top all that they probably have the best 'corporate' pension scheme in the country!!



If you agree that this is an appalling state of affairs, please pass it on to everyone you know. It's time to stand up to this lot.

doubt it true?!

Wouldn't be the least supprised but I don't know for sure. :x :viking: bunch of :pirate:s

Probably true, although the last line is a bit odd - whoever wrote that line (and I'm sure it's not the OP) hasn't considered the fact that they are partly responsible for them being there. and so is everybody in this country, so if you pass it onto them what you really should say is 'Why on earth did you vote this rabble in?'

You can do anything with statistics

I guessed it was a bit of a scam. Funny how we all want to believe it is real.
