Good to see these worms being ripped out of the woodwork.
Just goes to show the incompetence of those who would do anything to get into power.
It IS good to see such action taken, and to see that the fellow has resigned the position that he attained by such nefarious means. It is most
important that persons who gain status and social position which puts them in control of peoples lives are above reproach, and held to moral standards
far in excess of those who live under thier order...
It's all very well being a high paid top executive and the like, but can yo do the job?
Scamming, tricking, paying your way in is not going to work for too much longer.. I hope this raises awareness for millions of others ..

... However, there is another point here. I believe that in order for government to be representative of its people, that the persons who make the
choices that affect the nation are people who do not just represent that nation, but are from the societal level which makes up the majority.
In Britain for instance we have a government, in which the power resides with a few Eaton schooled, university educated, well to do gentlemen, who
know nothing of real life in thier own nation. They claim to represent the desires and the needs of the people in parliament , but are fundamentaly
incapable of this due to the plain fact, that they have never expirienced the hardship of poverty, or victimisation by the state, that most regular
folks have been exposed to.
It is my belief, that being highly educated, well off, and generaly beyond worry over monthly bills (which all these extremely powerful men
absolutely are) makes them unfit to speak on behalf of all but the minority of Britons, and thusly , I believe that unless the House of Commons
becomes populated almost exclusively , and the power positions held only by, former bin men, pizza delivery boys, postmen, plumbers , electricians,
former car plant workers (which are legion in Britain) , that we will not get a truely representative government.
What I am driving at is that although Guttenberg cheated his way into his position, one should not REQUIRE a doctorate, or any other kind of high
level qualification to be a person of power in his nation, because such things are reserved for the lucky and the privileged largely speaking, or at
least have been for many years.
The only measure of a persons fitness to govern, is to observe thier morality, thier ethics, both in word and deed, and should these persons be found
wanting, then they should be disallowed. Should they be found to be decent, hardworking, thoughtful, caring , and utterly beyond the control of anyone
but the people, THEN and ONLY then, are they worth considering for public office of any kind whatsoever.
Guttenberg for instance is probably not qualified to even breathe air by that standard, which would fit him well enough alongside every
parliamentarian of every nation on the face of the world.
