QuestionA sludge-bucket of Group Nouns for politicians... Pin

Most people know a load of cows is a "Herd", a load of Lions is a "Pride" but how many people know the correct collective (or group) nouns for politicians?

My suggestions are:
- A Turgid Moreass of.. (mis-spelling of morass is deliberate).
- A Lie of..
- A Criminal Bunch of..
- A ^%%*&^%$ %$#^#$& ***&** of..

Sorry, got carried away there.

Most collective nouns are single words such as in: a Murder of Crows, a Pack of Wolves, a Swarm of Bees, a Flock of Geese, etc.
So what we need is a good, appropriate, single word to be used as a collective noun for politicians:


Note: Please, no political messages or trolling - we still have a soapbox for that.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
