Contracts are being brought up to date by Government and Business magnets in the UK following the leads of Rupert Murdoch and Jeremy Hunt.
We understand, from sources close to Power, that the following paragraph is to be included in all contracts making specific what has been generally known for decades.
"All contracts must contain a paragraph outlining procedures to be brought into action in case anything untoward occurs. They will make clear that in the event of a mistake being made by the person in charge the subordinate must always take the blame, agreeing that any error was their's alone and that the senior person knew nothing of any misdeeds."
Objections that this brings into the open what has been happily going on for years are being met by David Cameron who wants transparency. 'We want all those in charge to make an oath that they are doing the right thing. Some people will say FUCK YOU, others might go for the old fashioned GO TO HELL.'
What is apparent is that any back passages used by Government Ministers to establish contacts with very important people will be safeguarded so that any shit does not hit the fan.
