I think IÂ haveÂ found why Trevor Mallard chose a career in politics over banking:
A German banker and his secretary caught having sex in his 56th floor office are facing punishment â€“ not for romping in the office but for wasting work time, Bild newspaper reported on Wednesday.
A colleague walked in on the pair as they were sprawled across the banker’s desk high up in the Helaba bank headquarters in Frankfurt.
But the punctilious co-worker was less shocked by what they were doing than the fact that neither of them had â€˜clocked outâ€™ prior to their extra-curricular activities, violating bank regulations.
As far as managers were concerned, the thrust of the affair was not that the pair were getting down and dirty on a desk – but that they were technically bonking on the bank’s time.
Luckily for Mallard, MPs (or Labour Party blondes) donâ€™t have to complete those pesky private sector timesheets.
