The Bribery Act

From The Telegraph
Corporate Christmas gifts of a gold fountain pen or a case of Champagne may be caught by the new Bribery Act, according to a Serious Fraud Office "Secret Father Christmas" test drawn up by the country's largest professional service firm.
That's absurd.

I've sent small gifts to clients for Christmas. It's not a bribe, it's more of a coda, marking the end of a successful year of a relationship. It's not big, and certainly not of the sort of amount where I'd expect them to sway their decision in future (especially as they own the company and are therefore not corruptible).
