UK Prime Minister David Cameron employs, knowingly, a man who had been in court in 2007 for phone hacking, namely Andy Coulson. In any ordinary job, a person who has had such a courtcase is looked at very seriously, and may be refused employment altogether.
In the UK that man became the Communications Secretary in the Prime Minister's official residence, 10 Downing Street. Talk about putting the cat amongst the pigeons.
The UK public still have little idea who Adam Werritty is and probably we never will. David Cameron's government has caused many firms to close down with people losing their jobs by the thousands but he fought hard to keep old Fox in his ministerial post. One has to ask, Why?
It would come as no surprise if Mr Fox was not made up to a Lord, the next time such opportunites come around. Most of the other Conservative's slip-ups were in the past.
Now we are hearing details of a Liberal Democrat MP having a four year affair with a Russian woman, many claim was a spy. Of course, she denies she was or is a Russian spy. She also had an affair with a Dutch official and an European Nato worker. However, the Dutch diplomat smelled a rat and quickly finished the affair.
To top it all, reporters observed, for quite a few months another cabinet minister, Oliver Letwin, walking in St James park and reading letters from people, appealing for help. There were also other official letters with information and details on them. He was reading them, screwing them up and then throwing them into a public waste bin.
Now if that doesn't warrant the sack, what does?. These days when identity fraud is so wide spread it is unbelievable behaviour. All of these incidents are only the ones made public. One has to wonder about the true extent of government incompetencies. The mind boggles as to what really goes on in Westminster and the coalition government.
