Black went under the 'old' regime though, when Greenhow was still running things and the new CoMin had barely started (had Crookall made his departure a condition of taking the job?).  There were hints in the latest departures that such generosity was no longer automatic.  Though Longworth would have been entitled to retire anyway.

Apparently Longworth has gone now but doesn’t retire until September. So he’s either being placed in gardening leave or has quite a bit of flexi stored up

Unpopular opinion giving what I’ve read here so far but it’s a shame to see Richard Lole go in this way, in my dealings with him he was approachable, had enthusiasm for the job which certainly made a refreshing change, unfortunately some rather nasty individuals felt they had him in their pocket, played him like a fiddle and sold him down the river (IMO of course) DOI/DEFA is like a nest of Vipers and I feel bad for anyone trying to sort that mess out.

I think you might find that he sold himself down Peel Harbour. That was the only river involved.

Seems that The Untouchables are finally waking up to the fact that they are indeed responsible for their actions or inactions. I'm sure there'll be more but we probably won't know or read about them.

They're not being held responsible though are they. Allowed to resign in order to keep all the dosh being thrown at them

Rewarded for incompetence. What's not to like.

Unless you can prove gross incompetence at a tribunal & have followed all laid down procedures eg verbal & written warnings etc then it’s impossible to just dismiss anyone even in private sector

There are barely any documented procedures or processes in government

There are plenty, it’s just that most don’t follow them & under performance is not addressed as too much like hard work.

Good fucking riddance absolute failure.

It’s midsummer next week and we’ve still got the heating on - no decent snow for 8 years - totally useless in providing the climate the public expects as a minimum typical Government shill….

Well that's complete bollocks.  Plus, there is an interesting document called the Employment Act.

It’s not bollocks. I worked in Government. Induction?…nope. And from friends still employed, new starters barely get one now. Appraisals, or PDR’s? Nope. You come in, someone spends an hour or two showing you where things are and then off you go. There is no guidance notes, or ‘documented’ processes on what to do with anything. Yes there’s certain policies and acts that are corporately driven by HR, but I’m talking documented processes, procedures, etc. wouldn’t surprise me if there were no documented risk assessments for a lot of front line workers.

Thus is accurate.
