Some Internal Auditors Spent £5,000 on a Bongo Drumming Team-Building Event at a Burlesque Club

Building rapport on a team is important. Getting to know the guy/girl next to you in the trenches makes for a stronger unit and the willingness to help each other out when necessary.

The vitriolic exposé from the Conservative Party said the department under the Labour government “policed wasteful spending”. Apparently the club’s dancers, Lady Beau Peep and “showgirl sensation” Amber Topaz, were not present during the event.
