When is a bribe just an incentive?
It is a bribe when you offer a cop money to tear up your speeding ticket.
It is an incentive when the Deputy Prime Minister makes an offer of "....a new deal to turn Manek Urai into a new development area in Kelantan, provided Barisan Nasional wins (the) by-election."
A legal mind defines it this way...
An incentive is given to encourage better performance of a task at hand, a bribe is given to procure a task.
The Instant Cafe Theatre Company's YB says, "No! I never, never take bribes. I only take GIFTS."......"It's only a bribe when I ask for it. That's why I never ask. I only SUGGEST."
