    Corruption in high places is not new.
    If you look back over the years at sudden departures of politicians, senior public servants and even Pm there is always a story behind it.
    Sadly rarely does the truth come out so they walk away with a nice big sum all paid for by the tax payer.

    Latest news today -
    A new public inquiry into the scandal starts today Thursday 11th January 2024. And guess what, it may turn out to be a hit in Hollywood.

    Those were the old ways of thinking and worked very satisfactory. Today on a lot of shipping it is master and mate , which means for a lot of masters is 6 on and stop on. The E.R. With an unmanned E.R. Is slightly a bit more relaxed until things go wrong. JS .
