A  theory:

The reason we have such consistently  “disappointing appointments”.

 When someone is interviewed for a job, there is bias ( whether conscious or unconscious ,is of little relevance  )  of the interviewer (s) to favour   the candidate  who is most  like themselves.

This results in a sort of consistency and continuity, but set at a comfortably low level of competence .

-which  the appointee regularly and unapologetically ,fails to reach.

 

Absolutely spot on, the repetitiveness is unbelievable, like interviews like, and get rid of anyone with ideas or competency as they are seen as a threat to the standard

 

they should have utilised this link as part of model research...  an I claim my 80k paycheck now

For obvious reasons I recall only Chris Corlett.

Seems to have survived though!

They always do though, if they have friends. 

Scott was binned as hospital manager but then became Director of Infrastructure or something,  nothing to do with hospitals or nursing

Morris was boss at the hospital then promoted to deputy CEO 

Quinn packed his bags and shot off

Who took over after Quinn??

“Examiner” on page 19  details Deputy chief is apparently on a trip to Spain to learn about “Integrated Care”.

Plagiarising material from Spain will  be easier  than  than from Wigan.

“ Juan”...  “from  Ramsey”   will be less   conspicuous than “Mohamed”.

What happened to the methods we were supposed to be plagiarising from New Zealand too?

A little bit of topic but noticed that the CM was welcoming a Mr. Peter Boxer to the IOM Government on twitter who was the Deputy Director of the UK Cabinet Office. Havent seen any media announcement on what role he has taken or is he just working with our Government?

He can't that important if he was only a Deputy.

It's just the usual JFTB.

I suspect he is the new head of Crown and External Relations, following Della Fletchers retirement.

quite surprised they have appointed someone from within Whitehall. The team next door now have a man on the inside in every sense. It’s only going to work well in one direction. 

The role requires an awful lot of time in London.

Don’t dispute any of that Derek but it seems to me that any local complexion/Manxness/awareness of our particular nature because senior civil servants are local people, was lost a very long time ago. We clearly have a civil service; there isn’t a Manx civil service though.

You appear to be mistaken. That trip was what is referred to in technical terms as “a jolly”.

Apologies. I've been innocently under the illusion that there was diligence, regard for the taxpayer and morals involved.

It depends what you mean by "our particular nature" and what constitutes a "manx civil service"
