what gifts do some of our reps get through

Corporate Hospitality

  • Slap-up meals (with unlimited free bar) at the Balbirnie House Hotel.
  • Luxurious meals at Edinburgh Castle.
  • All-expenses paid trips to box office seats at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
  • All-expenses paid trips to the Six Nations Rugby Matches.

This should be totally illegal. How can they be objective if they're accepting gifts etc it smacks of bribery

Testimonial #1 Monkey Survey Response

They need to be seen to be independent. Accepting gifts or hospitality calls that into question.

Testimonial #2 Monkey Survey Response

They become compromised. I've no objection to tea & sandwiches, but to be going to fancy hotels for slap-up meals is not on. Why do our reps need to go to the rugby with the Moss. and also receive personal gifts, ridiculous.

Testimonial #3 Monkey Survey Response

This is purely to get them onside, if anyone accepted gifts they should not be in place

Testimonial #4 Monkey Survey Response

Why are they paying out a silencer??? What's to gain?
