Corruption! The allegation trips off the lips of commentators across the board, especially in discussion of the poorest parts of the world. Are corrupt, greedy regimes and war lords so widespread? Should developing countries be monitored and measured for their application of â€œgood governanceâ€ to stem corrupt tendencies? Is poverty the product of third-world gangsters, thieving politicians and corporate fraudsters? No, but our obsession with corruption is endemic. So say Brendon and Yolanda, two young South Africans who, on their first visit to the UK, are told by new-found workmates that â€œliving in such a corrupt country must be awfulâ€. The youngsters are appalled and decide to unravel the babble that they see as wrong, ridiculous and racist.
