Colin always seems to have his finger on the cash pulse.

Actually, it's quite amusing to sit outside the House of Keys toward the end of a week day lunch hour and count how many couples say bye bye to each other and depart into different government buildings. It's an exclusive club where you get in --- and promoted --- based on the right connections. Nepotism and cronyism, all paid for by the taxpayer.

Sorry cant resist, but have you nothing better to do than to sit outside the building watching workers walk back into their offices? Sounds a bit of a strange thing to post really.

 

No offence, just sounded a little, well, weird..

No, I honestly don't have anything better to do. Except munch on a sandwich perhaps.

You really are very bitter about something.

How could they have met at work if they work in different buildings?

 

I don't know exactly how many people got their jobs because they were related (by blood or marriage) to individuals already in the managerial class of the civil service, but I'd wager quite a few. It is certainly remarkable the number of new people I have seen join the civil service who just mysteriously happen to have a relative high up in the managerial class.

 

There's definitely a lot of dodgy backroom shenanigans involved. It's totally corrupt.

And lets not forget the numerous retired police officers (retirement age 50), who pocket their lump sum and pension, and walk straight into a government post.

Retired police men and women lets remember.

I met my wife at work. We worked for the same company, in different buildings about half a mile apart.

 

I worked in IT, and got sent there to fix her computer. We also met on a team building day, and on a training course.

@ Bulgam Miner - I was under the impression that, if you receive a government pension you couldn't be employed by the government without losing your pension?

 

I know some ' freelance' as part of their company - so this is overlooked!

 

But as far as I am aware they cannot be employed directly by the government! Might be wrong thou????

This is the Isle of Man, its not just the civil service mate. Its rife everywhere, you get the job because of your surname.

 

Its actually encouraged to positively discriminate towards manx people. Why are you suprised? Its a funny little place.
