Rogue’s gallery of androgynous, stupid, arrogant non-comps

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 Pocahontas:

On that alone the woman should be barred from any office of any kind but more follows in comments.

    At the apex of this gallery of pigs in knickers is Prime Minister, Mrs May. The first question to ask, perhaps, is who chose her ( maybe even who selected her to stand for election as an MP) and why?

    Apart from the fact that you don’t like her, I’m not sure what you have about Elizabeth Warren. She was a successful lawyer, expert in some facets of business law, a very successful law professor, and duly elected to the Senate by her state.

      There speaks the left. Must be her native American blood. And her idiocy in her statements, she gives the Occasional Cortez a run for her money on that score.

      As for not liking her, that follows her behaviour, not the other way about.

        But your comments were that these people were ‘parachutees’ who should be fired. Not matter how you feel about her, she was successful, and appears to be liked by her constituents. Democracy of any form doesn’t always give you what you want.

          She was a parachutee.


          # Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has become the designated attack dog for the Democratic Party.

          # She was a registered Republican until 1996 (that doesn’t get talked about much, does it?).

          # Warren claimed she left the party because it was becoming too cozy with Wall Street. Ironically, she is now backing a candidate who got rich giving paid speeches to Wall Street execs.

          # Warren finds religion when it suits her. She speaks glowingly about her United Methodist heritage and Christian values to appeal to middle America. But she enthusiastically supports abortion (including public funding for it). The United Methodist Church, for the record, categorically rejects abortion as a means of birth control and preaches the “sanctity of unborn human life.”

          # Warren preaches about the ills of the banking industry and the importance of financial responsibility. But she spent a good part of her career training the next generation of bankruptcy lawyers – you know, the ones who run cable TV ads at 2 a.m. Hardly a successful career.

          # Warren and her family bought and sold foreclosed houses for big profits.

          # In a 2003 book, Warren bluntly accused Clinton of putting the interests of fat-cat donors ahead of constituents while Clinton was serving as senator.

          # Elizabeth Warren is not being pushed forward by the Democratic Party because she is a woman of principle. She is being pushed forward because she’ll say anything.


          # Warren was among the Democrats taking part in an all-night protest of Sessions’ nomination ahead of tomorrow’s vote. On the Senate floor, Warren said the Alabama Senator was unfit to lead the Justice Department.

          Great coming from Pocahontas [see last screenshot in post].

          # The rule cited by McConnell prohibits Senators from “directly or indirectly, by any form of words, impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”

          Not only fraudulently holds a Senate office but broke Senate rules.

          # Claims to have financial expertise but has none:

          Warren is a dishonest fraud, she was a parachutee of the DNC in 2016 and she should have been dismissed forthwith.

      What does President Trump call her? Pocahontas?
      She’s a lefty, probably a fantasist, probably a liar.
      She’s a Democrat, so….

    Another thing they and their ilk portray is being eternally angry & miserable.

    Some you missed: Alison Saunders – the epitomy of gruel for every meal.

    Hellary Clinkton, Maxine Waters, Rudd, Abbot, Soubry, Lady Nugee, Warsi…

    All scowlers

      Oh yes – Saunders.
