E-Gaming Canute Required

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

If you were to have a league of bullshitters in Government or CS Roles, who would appear where ? This could catch on each time they proclaim some horseshit or other a bit like fantasy football !

In so far as that means anything I would translate it as "Required: champion bullshitter to try to convince e-gaming and other industries on the Island that the DfE knows what it is doing and is doing something to help them.  You will have no power to actually change anything, so we are paying you a lot of money to act as a buffer between the DfE hierarchy and the real world.

There's not much you can do in a year and I wonder if this is designed as a nice little earner for a mate at a loose end.

More likely written with somebody in mind who they will then shoe in until they reach a golden pensionable age - at our expense

Maybe Dan Dare should go for this one...having cocked up government restructuring and savings...and ending up at a Laxey flood?

Expanding team, I thought we were supposed to be getting a leaner more efficient government!

As someone that was in at the start of the e gaming "revolution" and has the worthless shares to prove it that could tempt me.However the job advert says nothing of the sort.Perhaps if certain Police Officers worked until they were 67 and paid the 40% of earnings that would pay for an early pension I might agree.The essential fact is that this Island is paying the massive outgoings for people that were unemployable elsewhere in the dim and distant.

£70k for 1 year won't get much of an expert.

Isn't that the truth.

That guy who worked for Isle of Man post office brought in just shy of £4000 revenue which is not bad. Got to be worth a go?

That's got to be our man.

In five years he'll have not brought in £5m. 10 years...not brought in £10m

A 100% increase!

He might find 6 Chinese e-gaming companies though!
