PICK a charge, any charge. Bribery? Extortion? Criminality? Corruption? Corruption it is, sir. Excellent choice. It's been hanging around politics from quite some time and has matured nicely. A very serious charge indeed -- a serious charge for the serious times we live in.
Now, chuck it at someone. Actually -- even better -- chuck it at everyone.
"The economy is in crisis because of political choices being made by a deeply corrupt -- and I couldn't stress this enough -- a deeply corrupt political elite operating within a flawed political system."
