The worst ones are the lower tiers of the hierarchy, the local councillors, town twinning trips which are really holidays, party after party with excuses it's for some fundraising event, hidden expenses and so forth. Very little criticism for them because nobody knows who they are, do you know who your councillor and Lord Mayor are? Or the head of social services in your local council who gets paid more than the Prime Minister and doesn't care about his (mostly) shambles of a department? The Queen presides over them technically but I bet she doesn't know how bad they are or doesn't care, one or the other. The more known people are more careful but almost unknown local bosses are the worst pisstakers.
