As I take a break from watching the Beach Volleyball and as my good Lady was showing a particularly avid interest in the swimming at the Olympics ,my wonderful personal assistant Miss Snoop (herself a fine Lacrosse player in her day) has just brought to my attention that Wirral Councillors and their Officers are “being sent back to school”.
Yes seriously ! Yet again Wirral Council projects itself beyond satire and in doing so demonstrates the normal isn’t just abnormal, it’s bat shit, eye rolling, tongue lolling, spittle flecked nuts! One can only conjecture what might be on the curriculum at this school for incompetents although I suspect that Reputation Management, The Art of Spin and How to Manage a Cover Up will feature prominently.
And I’m sure that “Games” would be well attended, although sadly it appears there will be no sack race!
It does make me wonder what the Council Officers who have attended Masters in Business Administration courses (which we the public have paid for) have been doing with their qualifications. One suspects they’re merely adornments on some glittering CV’s as any “learning” has clearly not been brought back to the workplace. How much do these people get paid ? Our coachman Vainian has been heard calling these officers “self-serving fuckwits” and although we do not approve of such colourful industrial language (unlike Brain Moore domed Councillor Harry “Fuck you! ” Smith) we believe he may have adroitly summed up the problem.
We understand that a spokesperson for the Council has issued the following statement: “
/* Style Definitions */
mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt;
mso-fareast-font-family:”Times New Roman”;
mso-bidi-font-family:”Times New Roman”;
“Lessons have been learned so ,er, lessons must be learned………will that do as an empty soundbite for now?”.
We also note that the Council safeguarding improvement plan [ Council Report on Adult Protection or C.R.A.P.) is amazingly still some way off being acceptable!!!!
Now even a cursory glance would suggest that surely the advice within is obvious stuff, and something we would have expected them to be doing as the NORM!! And therefore begs the question what the hell were they doing before now ??
