The UK is perceived to be more corrupt than it was following the 2009 expenses scandal that rocked parliament to its core. Hostile states are happy to watch the UK move away from core liberal democratic principles.
The worry of Transparency International’s new Corruption Perception Index is that so much of the world scores so poorly.
Just because corruption is very difficult to measure doesn’t mean that it can’t be felt and that high profile scandals don’t have an impact. The politicians implicated in these scandals neglect the impact that they can have at their peril.
