Uma companhia de malfeitores?

Estatísticas pouco conhecidas mas extremamente relevantes

Do The Timesde Londres num artigo: Obituary for the late Mr Common Sense.

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600
Employees and has the following statistics?

29 have been accused of spouse abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad cheques
117 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
4 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 organization 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 in line.

Quer dizer: são estes alguns dos componentes do Nanny State

  1. Do American Interest:

    “The assumption that money distorts democratic politics is so old that by now it has deeply rooted itself in American folklore. It was Mark Twain himself who famously said, well over a century ago, “It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native criminal class except Congress.” More recently, a variety of tart humor messages circulating on the Internet have set out to prove Twain right: To wit, members of the House of Representatives are far more likely than any average group of 435 adult Americans to have declared bankruptcy, been delinquent in alimony and child support payments, had their taxes audited, flunked or been thrown out of college, and been arrested for drunk driving—among other tawdry adventures. Urban legend or not, the frequency of these assertions underscores the widespread belief in the culture that politicians are by nature corrupt, and that any scandal is just business as usual—only this time, they got caught.”

  2. Talvez seja preconceito meu, mas não tenho dificuldade nenhuma em imaginar uma empresa com 600 empregados com estatísticas ainda piores. Especialmente se for portuguesa e do ramo, digamos, da construção civil.
