The people in charge in the United Kingdom: drugged, sleazy, corrupt, incompetent?

THREE Scottish Conservatives, including the party’s former leader, have been questioned by police as part of a corruption investigation in the United States.

David McLetchie and ex-Tory MSP Brian Monteith, were interviewed about a dinner they attended with a Republican Congressman and his associates.

The Lothian and Borders Police probe is part of a US Justice Department inquiry into an alleged “trips for votes” scandal involving lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

US authorities want details of a trip Abramoff made to the UK five years ago, when he was accompanied by his commercial clients and former House majority leader Tom DeLay. Part of the visit included a golfing trip to St Andrews, where the US delegation dined with a small group of senior Tories, including McLetchie and Monteith.

UK : "Each week, a murder or rape is committed by offenders supposedly under supervision. Yet, even knee-deep in evidence of its own failure, the National Probation Service cannot acknowledge its inability to reform these criminals. It is all a deadly con trick, writes David Fraser, who spent years working in the service."
