British Prime Minister David Cameron is all over the news after he referred to our West African neighbour Nigeria and Afghanistan as ‘fantastically corrupt’ nations.
The Conservative MP was briefing the Queen, the Speaker of the House and the Archbishop of Canterbury about an upcoming anti-corruption summit when he uttered the now infamous words.
