This arrived in my mail a momet ago
I pass it to you all for consideration
I cannot verify any of the allegations of course

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 cheque's

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

to make some basic checks about messages along these lines. It would take about ten seconds for you to find out that this message has been in circulation for a long time and in connection with the governments of various countries.

In short, it's a total hoax. I hope you didn't forward it to everyone on your contact list?

As it happens I initially post here [and nowwhere else] to elicit comment to back up up my usual response to this sort of thing [including the Virus/bug hoaxes] so that in amy reply to the sender - which is 'Google it first' before passing it on.
I never pass this sort of tripe on.
This particular sender simply will not heed the advice it seems.
Thank you all
