The Truth about Goats

‘Corruption? Don’t you mean foreign?’ asks Cameron


Organisers of the anti-corruption summit in London were left red-faced when their key-note speaker, the UK’s Prime Minister, let slip that he was not au fait with the dictionary definition of the word.  Much to their chagrin, Mr. Cameron went on to cite the prime characteristics of corruption as – swarthy, accented and ‘smelling of spices’.

That's what happens if you deregulate everything

Once the his error had be pointed out, Mr. Cameron hastily apologised to the conference for his earlier faux pas referring to the Nigerians has ‘fantastically corrupt’, by which he meant fantastically ‘foreign-looking’.  To a stunned room his aide read a memo listing why Nigerians all looked a bit ‘shifty’, sent dubious emails and dressed in ‘fluorescent tea towels’.

Mr. Cameron was said to have been disappointed to discover he was sharing a platform with a rag-tag collection of economic reformists and John Kerry.  Ironically, for many years, he had been regularly using the word ‘free-market’ mistakenly as a synonym for fraud.  Likewise he was guilty of other malapropisms; like using Privatization for Profiteering, Racketeering for Reform and Consensual for Dead Pig.

One delegate commented: ‘I’m not sure what’s worse – him not knowing what corruption is or him not realising it applied to him?’  Mr. Cameron seemed unperturbed that the UK controlled more tax havens than the Cosa Nostra; his aide explained: ‘When he said corruption causes extremism, what he meant was – foreigners are a nuisance.  Seriously, he’s actually fine with corruption and extremism – but only if it’s British’.
