Protests in the UK over corruption
« on: February 01, 2021, 03:56:39 PM »
Im just wondering when there will be protests in the UK about corruption ? They seem to do it in Russia and the whole world is interested.. but what about the UK?

Whilst nearly 15,000 employees have been wondering about their future "Sir" Philip Green and "Lady" green have been living it up in Monaco , he even sent the bitch about 1 billion quid tax free to enjoy.. (Staff wages money) Thats after already robbing the pension money from about 15,000 employees ..

What is happening then? No protests in the street? No big stories? No videos explaining what he has done with the cash? No videos about his doggy business associates? No 15,000 staff taking to the streets causing problems?

Shall we investigate his big yachts , private homes in Monaco , private jest and so on?  :laugh:

While I will not comment on Canadian corruption (you have enough to deal with your PM) The corruption in the United States is a very different flavour (flavor).

Off course the Ukrainian drama corruption is in fact tops for entertainment value.

The UK muddles on with a stiff upper lip while assuming the position.

Let's ask the forum expert. Is that true Andrew?  :laugh:

FTFY.

It seems that the Dutchman with dyslexia has blue balls like his pal Andy and has lost his sense of humor, again.

As for explanation or clarification there is none.

Lack of social skills or an inability to frame an idea in a coherent manner? Take your pick.  :'(

Corruption has reached a level not seen in many places in Russian control Ukraine. The population has been leaving the area. Out of what was 4.5 million people it is down to 2 million people. They have closed the border and charge a high price for an exit visa to be able to go to the Ukraine. My girl's mother and grand mother can no longer go to Ukraine to get the retirement checks. This was at first said to control the virus  but it has become apparent there is more to it than that. The border with Russia remains open. This has lasted for nearly a year now. There seems to be no plans of ever lifting it as the ability to sell exit visas has become a profitable business.

I thought the problem in Ukraine was all fixed? They got a new peoples president , no more corruption just honesty all the way through the government from the President down to the bin men? The US and EU been giving out money? What happened then?

Aaaa ok nothing as usual...
