Efficiency? Hermes?

Best one I've heard all day.

The good work that local couriers do is no reflection of what an utterly terrible service Hermes as a company provide. They pay their staff an absolute pittance and lose or break parcels far more often than any other service I've dealt with.

See Joe Lycett's investigations into them.

 

Yes it’s typical of Pongo who would think they were efficient, he wouldn’t know what the word means in his job!

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

What a brilliant job the fantastic Hermes delivery people have been doing throughout this crisis. Don't you agree @Julie Edge (Onchan) and @Banker?

With this being election year, can you think of any ways in which we could bring the same kind of decentralised efficiencies to the Post Office? 

Oh wait...you're serious?

Typical trying to have a dig at the hard working postal staff now who have worked tirelessly through the pandemic ensuring the public get parcels etc. 

You really are a nasty sod with your nice government wages coming in each week.

Post Office staff are great. But it's still a top heavy unionised monolith.

The parcel business would make a great little private company.

How can the IOMPO disrupt a delivery service that is closed?  They have no ability to intercept the deliveries whose mode has been determined by the vendor. 

How much decentralisation do you envisage within the confines of the geography and points of entry on the IOM? 

BONKERS!

After everyone said how crap Hermès are in contradiction of you saying they’re wonderful you try & change tack, typical.

Get back to your government job organizing the tea rota!

Aw thanks you lot. You really are lovely.  I almost feel like it's my birthday.

(it's on Wednesday - did I tell you already?)

Another piscean!  We are a good bunch (me, my daughter, brother, sister in law and granddaughter all have March birthdays), but one of our traits is that we don't put much store in that astrology bunkum! 

Happy Birthday for Wednesday!

I am getting use to something changing being introduced the days before a Tynwald/HOK sitting that I have a question in about the topic!  Only way to get answers sometimes - can’t have a woman getting that information out there first so they publish 😀

Looking at the terms of reference for the review there is little detail about specifically finding out who was accountable and how the process was supposed to work.

Surely it was being monitored  or supervised regularly by someone ?. Surely frequent reports were being created / audited (?monthly) to ensure the system was operating as it was supposed to. ?

Was there a feedback mechanism to Government who created the rules to show they were being adhered to ?

I've always thought there was something fishy about Pisceans.

More to the point, there is nothing to say to identify what failures in the drafting, approval and monitoring of directions and other measures implemented to protect the IOM in line with the government's policy of eradication.

And my Hermès delivery person is useless

....and mine certainly isn't.  Notwithstanding the reported shortcomings of the controlling company, she has done a sterling job over the past 12 months.  It has been RM that has been a complete disaster.

I see that the Haut de la Garenne scandal in Jersey is a topic for Storyville now, 14 years on.  Open reviews, investigations and government is very important to preserve our reputation long into the future.

My Hermes guy is a good bloke. A birthday present for a neighbour who needed serious cheering up last spring went missing and he did everything he could to help (to no avail, sadly). Even gave me his personal phone number.

Hermes itself was useless.

Agree. The guy who delivers to us is a good egg who I went to school with. Same with the personal number, on pain of death if I pass it on to anyone else. He has access to my summerhouse and will often leave parcels for the houses either side of me when the occupants are out, which helps make his job easier too.
