Code Of Conduct


With many of the recent events in society, you might have found yourself questioning whether or not a code of conduct exists and if so who does it apply to? In recent times we’ve had the Metropolitan Police accused of institutional corruption and racism. We have had the Prime Minister Boris Johnson along with Dominic Cummings, Matt Hancock and Pritti Patel to name but a few push the boundaries beyond recognition of any adherence to any code.

When you look at some of the elements that form the code of conduct for MP’s selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. And for the Police honesty, integrity, fairness, impartiality, politeness and tolerance you have to wonder where and when are these being applied and what if any are the consequences for fouling foul. 

Why is a code of conduct important? It is important because it serves not only as a set of internal guidelines for an organisation or institution to follow, but also as an external statement of their values and commitments. A well-written code of conduct clarifies an organisation's values and principles, linking them with standards of professional conduct when it comes to its behaviour. As a result, codes of conduct set the benchmarks for organisation and institutions to live up to.

When the moral compass of any country, disintegrates into double standards with one rule for the rich and another for the poor, one rule for the whites another for the blacks, false accounting of its finances, misinformation through its media platforms, a lack of equal opportunities in employment, education, health, housing and justice the end result is an unacceptable loss of life. Which cannot and should not be acceptable in any modern day society.
