Westminster MPs - /still/ rank amateurs when it comes to unethical behaviour

Note this from the Mail & Guardian (Jo'burg):

"The Minister of Transport S'bu Ndebele has accepted a R1,1-million Mercedes Benz S500 from a group of contractors with contracts worth more than R400-million in the department, the Star reported on Sunday....Among other gifts Ndebele received was a herd of cattle.

But Ndebele defended the gesture by the contractors and said it was planned long before he and the contractors became aware that he would be appointed into the transport portfolio".

At least he did not say it was an honest mistake.

Order order.

Croydon - stand by for a flood of Tamil refugees.

I gather Martine & Sego seem to be patching something up. (Mixt metaphor or sunning). Joint meeting at some place no-one's ever heard of in the Atlantic Loire.

Ah, c'est le facteur humain...

The only Tamil I have ever known was a nice fellow, and fortunately was not very tigerish.

Yes, they are clasping each other warmly by the throat. The PS is going to get whipped by Sarko's lot in the European election, which will be amusing, and a high proportion of Gauls, of all stripes, think that Bayrou can get to the second round in 2012. Which would prompt still more caterwauling from the PS. I can't wait.
