Have to kind of agree with this. Ian took on an ancient bordering on dangerous bus fleet with a highly difficult workforce (some v good and some very bad) whose terms and conditions were egregious.  And turned it round in the teeth of incredible opposition. 

Thanks for your contribution and happy retirement, Ian.

Apologies if all that is complicated. 🧐

No that’s helpful Bazza. It is complicated and I heard they need the RTLC to do some sort of amendment / change to extract him.

That dangerous that they were sold to his mate in Blackpool for almost nothing and many of them are still running.

Exactly. Almost every bus that Longworth has ever sold has gone on to be used elsewhere, in much harsher operating environments such as Blackpool, Nottingham, Reading, Cardiff, Bournemouth and others I've probably forgotten.

Hardly any tradesmen left in this department  everyone  sick and tired of the   crass incompetence  of the so called management ,and their attitude , Mr Thomas has  a difficult job to sort  it out , but hopefully  someone has seen the light at last and is prepared to do something about it

Bit sad that. I liked it when bus colours reflected the locality - Liverpool green, Manchester orange, Isle of Man red and cream. Everything's become bland and homogenised - even cars are all boring colours black, grey/silver, dark blue or white.

NPM reporting that DOI have recruited a morale officer to improve, well, morale. 

 

I hope it's the pary bus driver because at least can drive a bus when things go awry.

I had a boss one who used to DEMAND camaraderie in our department. She's probably still doing it..

 

I used to shudder whenever I heard the word "wellbeing".
