They’re having a laugh!

 

Now I must point out at this stage that this job was actually advertised in 2010, but the job spec does mention

 

The role is currently line manager to one Programme Assistant and takes responsibility for the management of one external consultant. There is the potential for the team to grow in the future.

 

So one would assume that the job is still there.   

And there is, of course, a trade aspect to the job as well.  

 

Still, it gives you a warm feeling to know that some of the money you have contributed goes towards “delivering strategies” to fight climate change!

    Line manager to one assistant and an external consultant!

    Sheesh, how much money remains after the staff and overheads get paid?

    FYI, Piers Corbyn made a p*ss poor job of trying to convince Andrew Neil et al of the position of sceptics on this week.
    Starts around the six minute mark.

    In reply to Paula – Thanks for the link. I have to disagree, I thought Piers did very well. Andrew Neil is a difficult man to argue with, but compared to Liz Truss I thought his points were well made. How good to see a climate sceptic getting air time at all.

      Gotta disagree there. Piers came across as a conspiracy believer. There are far simpler ways to blow apart the climate myth and he missed it. The other interesting thing is Andrew Neil. Normally Neil posts the occasional tweet that gives one the impression that he is a sceptic. However, the questions he posed were those which have been dismissed as folly. It was as if he were under instruction to come across as neutral and ask stock questions when he had the opportunity to open up a sensible line of questioning. Even Andrew Neil isn’t as independent as he likes to make us think.

    Ingenuity at the service of malignant waste. Painful read.
