Title:
If this is true – who would ever trust a Political Leader again …
The BBC published a story on-line tonight that has the potential to blow the creditability of every Political Leader to levels of utter contempt.


Chirac and De Villepin ‘given $20m by African leaders’

Dominique de Villepin and Jacques Chirac in 2007 The former PM and president are both suing Mr Bourgi for defamation.

French ex-President Jacques Chirac, and presidential hopeful and former PM Dominique de Villepin were given $20m by African leaders, partly to finance election campaigns, a lawyer alleges.

The lawyer, Robert Bourgi, said he was personally involved in handing Mr Chirac briefcases full of cash.

Both former leaders deny the allegations and say they will sue Mr Bourgi, a former aide, for defamation.

The allegations come seven months before France’s presidential election.

The innuendo over Politicians being paid for favours has always been suspected – and quite often proved in many Countries including Australia. There were stories in the 80’s that Bob Hawke became very wealthy during his term – the way he did it was via Murdoch press publishing a story – Hawke would sue for defamation and settle out of court – nobody bothered to ask any questions.

Corrupt Leaders exist – and until they become past Leaders and a new breed of moral existence enters the halls of Government – we will only ever get more of the same – self-serving interests will always prevail.

    Surprising to see this in the mainstream. Typically you have to refer to alternate media sources to find out what’s going on behind the scenes. Perhaps these guys are out of favour with the oligarchs, just as former IMF boss Strauss Khan was. We really do need to stop the corruption, and replace our leaders (teleprompter reading bankster puppets).
