Hmmmm, wondering if anyone can see the common traits in these people below – apart from every single one having been appointed to a major role – head of something and then going on to make a pig’s breakfast of the job.
But that’s being kind – there was, in every case, some element of destruction involved once she got her hands on the reins. Take Jodi Farhat who flooded the Missouri basin so that hundreds lost their homes. Or Zenna Atkins who made a mess of Ofsted, Christine Nixon, police chief. They’re from all around the world, this lot.
The look on the faces – complete non-comps elevated and complimented about how good they are, how efficient, promoted, parachuted in, every one of them, no exceptions, with the arrogance to think they’re just the ant’s pants, outrageous salaries and expenses claims … and so it goes on.
And really quite destructive. One is a headmistress who had to be removed for her idiotic behaviour, one ran Common Purpose, one pretends she’s a major journo – every single one of them a total waste of space.
Years ago I read of a rugby manager, name’s now hazy, who called over a player called, I think, Lammy, who had just committed an absolute howler, the latter was now reassured, “Don’t feel too bad about it, Lammy, everyone makes mistakes.” Lammy began to feel better. “It’s just that you make more than anyone, you shouldn’t even be here, why did they send you?”
I think you get the idea, the connection with the rogue’s gallery.
And it raises certain questions, doesn’t it? Just look at that demographic – someone up high is appointing these non-comps and it’s the same in every western nation now.
Just who is appointing them because they should be summarily sacked. In all cases of parachutism, the appointees themselves can’t help taking the roles. No one’s ever complimented them before and they quite like being head honchos, as good as any man, bossing it over departments.
No, it’s these high-ups, I suspect males, who need the sack.
As for the parachutees, I’ve said it over and over and over – there do exist efficient, competent, essentially nice women in the world, good women too, you just have to look … but this ain’t them.
By the very definition that they are in the frame for promotion to a top job, they should not be given it under any circumstances whatsoever.
So let’s look again at these tossers who promoted them – we’re back to the same old question – is it incompetence or design in each case? Many pundits and readers, thank goodness, are now increasingly coming around to the idea that this is not just sheer incompetence, not when a pattern like this sets in around the globe.
And here’s the latest downunder, to the south of a southern bay in a sleepy hollow called Queenscliff. She’s one of the honchos on a local council and this council has just filed a $2.5m budget for an extraordinary range of programmes in the local area.
You can guess what most of the proposals are – the lady mayor is also Head of Wellbeing – and those proposals do not include more effective garbage collection nor improvement to or repair of roads. The state government has flatly said no and is fighting this council – just look at that face. You know the politics without it even having to be spelt out.
Even down to the hairstyle – same pattern, same look, same type, same obstinate, mindless arrogance, it’s almost as if those above go out of their way looking for this type to appoint.
And remember, today’s snowflakes are going to be tomorrow’s androgynous examples of these. Welcome to tomorrow’s world.
On that alone the woman should be barred from any office of any kind but more follows in comments.
