Anyone expecting any change after the next GE is deluded

The bravest, boldest thing to do would be to walk away, take the hit and from thereon, resolve never to allow hubris to creep into decisions ever again. I lost count of the number of MHKs I told this

It’s deeper than that.  You have MHKs too worried about upsetting folk, getting a second term etc. nobody has any force or vision or appetite for reform and change.  I thought at every GE,”

Jebus...'to be seen to be doing something' or what?

 

Stable doors, late closure thereof and bolting horses could spring to mind....

Only the isle of man would think it's a good idea to dump £60m of its money on another islands construction project. could we not a get a monorail to a waterpark with flumes on the calf for the same money?

Or just admit it's a vanity project for the gov's day trip jollys to Liverpool One?At least it will be clear then and we can move on.

Two different construction projects, half a mile apart.

'Internal only' also implies that they think there is a government candidate with those skills and experience.  Ha ha.

Plenty of stupid, gullible and easy to manipulate people about within IOMG with the skills and experience. I’m sure they have a preferred candidate to interview, and like many places, the interviewee is coached beforehand. Corruption? Possibly. Nepotism? Possibly. Definitely Cronyism and Chumocracy at work,

...and the amount we are paying out is enough for the building and completion of both of them, with money to spare, if the truth be known......

Otherwise no one would believe it.   £50k eh?  Though I suppose you can double that with the backhanders.

Of course this is the one sort of job where you would think an experienced outsider was essential if they were actually sincere about fighting corruption. The description is more telling:

Join our team as an Anti-Bribery and Corruption Project Manager within the Anti-Money Laundering Policy Office!

[...] Some of your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing a national anti- bribery and corruption strategy and effective online resources for accessing information
  • Researching approaches taken by other jurisdictions to identify good practice
  • Reporting progress and putting forward recommendations to the Financial Crime Strategic Board
  • Developing project plans and defining outcomes against agreed aims
  • Identifying longer-term goals

Instead it's just another salary boost for some mate who will write reports nobody reads and sit around in meetings that never take any actions.   Alarmingly "Join our team as an" suggests there may already be some of these in position.

That this endless increase in well-paid non-jobs for the chosen few, which relate to "strategy" and "policy" rather than implementation, is itself a form of corruption is an irony that seems to escape them.

the telling thing is that they are advertising the post so they must know that bribery and corruption  exist no doubt it is only to look for future transgressions though.

I’m curious, and wonder if this is a new created role at the request of a Moneyval inspection? Is it a permanent role? Why internal applicants? If the role is so specific then surely it should be thrown open to skilled, qualified and experienced people from the Private Sector? Could the Financial Supervision Authority not have an input and possibly second one of their officials?
 

Why the Cabinet Office? Are each IOMG department going to a have Anti Bribery and Corruption Manager? Some would say it would be apt for one to be recruited for the Department of Incompetence.

It’s also ironic that the Treasury has a few inspectors at Markwell House (surprise surprise ex police!) who deal with fraud etc. Only thing is they are really useless as is evident when you see DHSC fraud cases over £25-35k reported in the local press and broadcast on the the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece.
