Britain is tenth.

I'm rather proud of the fact that political corruption in Britain usually consists of nothing more than MPs spending taxpayers' money on buying floating duck houses for their garden ponds.

I know. The MPs' expenses scandal back in 2009 showed just how MPs were using their taxpayer-funded allowances to buy things like floating duck ponds and chocolate bars. It was the then Tory MP for Gosport, Sir Peter Viggers, who bought the floating duck house for his garden pond out of his allowances. He ended up stepping down over it.

It was a big scandal that year, but when you compare it to the rampant political corruption that's rife in other countries it just seems relatively minor.

Considering corruption is supposed to operate in the shadows, where do they get their data?

You know that we had to pay to get such a high rating on that list?

Something tells me we used to be higher in the rating as nobody is claiming we are improving as a society, go figure.

I can only imagine. Apparently the rating is done by the International Olympic Committee. Ba Bum Tssss.

Does this mean that Canadians masterbate less than those who are higher on the list or do they just hide when they do it. ?

I'll never tell..

Notice that the least corrupt countries are only the size of a medium province or smaller?

Not too surprising. In general the larger the government the more corruption. It is almost automatic for example that the USA will be more corrupt than Canada as it is much larger nation in terms of population with a larger government. Not only that, the US has 50 states governments compared to Canada's 10 provincial governments, which increases the possibility of corruption.

There are other variables, of course, such as the level of democracy (or lack of it) in a country; its level of education; and its traditions of democracy.

I wouldn't worry. With the influx of Muslims coming moving into Denmark and Sweden, those two countries won't be topping lists of least corrupt countries and countries with the highest quality of life for much longer.

I don't believe that. Britain's government is larger than America's (650 MPs compared to 434 Representatives and a whopping 820 Lords compared to just 100 Senators) - Britain's parliament is the only bicameral parliament in the world whose upper house is larger than its lower house - yet Britain is the tenth-least corrupt country in the world and America the sixteenth-least corrupt.

We'll see. I'd much rather live in Britain than in any Scandinavian country, put it that way, as would most people.

Then start believing. The UK has only one major government with local assemblies in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The US has fifty-one different governments. Add up all the members of the various state governments and Britain's government is quite low by comparison. In addition, the US elects numerous local officials that are not elected in most countries, such as district attorneys, sheriffs and judges. Every elected official represents someone who can be bribed and given the huge amount of cash common in US elections there is bound to be a certain level of corruption. .
