Corrupt? Moi?

Here at the Ministry of Justice we are pleased to announce the addition of a new responsibility to our current portfolio of duties. And why not? After all, we appear to have complete control of the prison service, and everything is so tickety-boo that we have plenty of time to spare. And so, as Secretary of State for Justice, it behoves me to take charge of the official anti-corruption post vacated by former Business Secretary, John Hutton. Now, I hear you ask, isn't The Red Baron, Peter Mandelson, the new Business Secretary? Should it not be his responsibility? Well, yes he is, and despite having quit the cabinet twice previously under, shall we say, somewhat 'mysterious' circumstances, I can assure the public that this appointment in no way reflects badly on his integrity, or the trust in which he is held by our glorious leader, Gordon Brown. So there. Let's have no more talk of 'dodgy dealings', 'home-owners' and favours done for a quick blow-job round the back of the bike-sheds; his honesty is unimpeachable and his record speaks for itself (I'd leave that bit out if I were you - ed). Justice for all!
