Power, Corruption and lies

CIPS in their ethics test describe Corruption as "the request, agreeing to or accepting a financial or other advantage intending that, in consequence a relevant function or activity is performed improperly"

This is the definition of Corruption that I am applying when I say that Deloitte deciding not to bid for UK Government contracts for 6 to 18 months in order to appease Ministers is corruption.  Ministers are agreeing to it for political and personal reasons rather than the good of the country.  There is no suggestion that they will benefit financially, though that is not the only definition of corruption.
