 Wasn't he previously involved with the failed NHS UK project along with a current member of Manx care?

I'm awaiting Mr. Wild's response regarding this with bated breath

I'm not commenting on this judgement but I hear the employer has 'previous.'

I remember back in the late 80s or maybe 1990, a para-medical professional's union placed an advert in a national professional journal warning potential applicants about a post that had become vacant here due to the dismissal of the previous incumbent.

The ad encouraged potential applicants to phone this union for a briefing before applying and I was tasked with finding out what it was about.

Apparently this highly paid and very well respected professionally registered employee had been allegedly unfairly dismissed and that the offending line manager (also registered with their appropriate council) was still in post.

I understand that a significant settlement was eventually made to the dismissed employee which was kept from the public.

I know of at least one more case (remarkably for same post but different line manager this time) where a significant secret payout was made to the professional to avoid, I assume, having to go to tribunal. NB .. again this was kept from the public.

I personally think that the standard was set when ex CM Quayle hired Charters as DHSC Head. With IOMG it seems if you have a bike or into 2 wheels, your a shoe in. Starship Enterprise are heavily running an advertisement on Facebook, via locate.im encouraging visiting bikers to relocate here. I would rather people have skills, experience and common sense along with some life experiences, over the ability to play golf, ride a cycle, ride a motorcycle or belong to the masons. 

Murray, and Ewart were Couch appointees

Tough to know where to start.  Especially galling is the new CEO of DHSS was culpable for conspiring with Magson to prevent Dr Ranson from leading the testing meetings.  

The lawyer described her exchanges with Magson as catty. 

She got promoted into Magson role due to arse 😘 kissing 

Shows how you can do well in that culture by sucking up, the culture will continue in DHSC as Malone seems to have got promoted by doing the dirty work for her mates.  Disgusting 🤮

If recent appointments/disasters are anything to go by, they clearly seem to prioritise style over susbstance.

This.... and not just recently either.

It's about titles like "Director of this and that Policy" and very little to do with actually making stuff work for the benefit of the GMT. IOMG is littered with these non-jobs.

I am currently taking Manx Care to tribunal after I whistle blew, it is the same themes bullying, victimization lack of accountability, one person with a flawed view leading in decisions that effect those involved/ collusion with HR and lack of challenge from HR/ raising issues of capability but not to the individual involved and no evidence to back it up.  Suffering humiliation, professional reputation destroyed. The list goes on! 

I bet you’re not the only one either. I hope you’re ok and you get the support and justice you need.

It determined she was unfairly dismissed – an outcome Mr Ashford said was 'disappointing'.

Un-bloody believable.

The whole scenario is disappointing , the fact that this talentless scruffy little twerp is termed minister beggars belief !

Not much talent in the pool though.

Presumably there will only be sub-judice issues if the DHSC decides to appeal against the ruling, which would be foolish (the report is clearly written to be as watertight and based on multiple causes as possible) but that's never stopped them before.  Arguably you could say that they need to keep quiet still if negotiation is going on with compensation/reinstatement.

Also if the Government Code says that Ministers must not "involve themselves in individual employment issues" how come Ashford is calling it "disappointing".

Ashford standing firm, for the firm. Funny how he can stand behind the ministerial code which states minister's can't become involved in employment issues. The same ministerial code which applied to interested parties excusing themselves from covid handout meetings. The code wasn't an obstacle back then...

Worth listening to Ashford's 39 seconds.

I take it in that interview no one questioned Ashford on his default position of lying about everything unless someone specifically showed him to be wrong as detailed in the judgement?
