Britain has slipped to an 11 year low on the table of corrupt countries compiled by Transparency International.

This is due to a combination of greedy British MP’s fiddling their expenses and the pathetic failure, for political reasons, of the British authorities to prosecute British firms for paying bribes (baksheesh) to Arab entrepreneurs.

Britain is currently 17th out of a total of 180 countries rated from zero to ten for their level of corruption, defined as “the abuse of entrusted power for personal gain” Countries such as Denmark, Sweden and New Zealand score highly with very little corruption, while countries such as Haiti, currently suffering a disastrous earthquake, and Myanmar, Iraq and Somalia bring up the rear.

Britain has suffered “a significant decline” in its ratings, according to Transparency International.
