Turks and Caicos Islands.

The UK has imposed direct rule on the Turks and Caicos Islands after uncovering evidence of corruption and incompetence at the heart of the Caribbean islands' administration.

Er right, so one bunch of grafting corrupt bastards have taken control of another bunch of grafting corrupt bastards.

Makes ya proud to be British it really does. Chutzpah and then some.

All I hope is that the jonah that is James Gordon Brown does not wish them luck or pay them a visit.

Britain says it has suspended the government of the Turks and Caicos Islands and imposed direct rule after allegations of systemic corruption and "serious dishonesty". Somewhat like what we have here in the UK.

British Foreign Office Minister Chris Bryant said he instructed the British governor of the island territory to suspend the ministerial government and the House of Assembly for as long as two years.

Bryant said his order also suspends the constitutional right to trial by jury in the Turks and Caicos. A trial run of what we are going to get here in the UK should Labour be re-elected.

"This is a serious constitutional step which the UK government has not taken lightly, but these measures are essential in order to restore good governance and sound financial management," Bryant said in a statement.

Oh come on, good governance. Mr Bryant must be having a laugh when he said that. Although the bit about "sound financial management," was a fucking killer. Bryant should consider a move to stand up.
