Just give the bastard a bus and tell him drive it himself . 

I’d like to see him go Thelma and Louise style by driving his own horsetram off the end of the pier.

Looks good, wish it was still there.

I've always said a pier with a cafe at the end would be brilliant. Given the current financial climate it isn't gong to happen unless some billionaire with naff all left to do with his money comes along...

Yes it would look brilliant . And a great attraction. Caveat though. The DOI and other government depts are not allowed within 10 miles of it. Imagine a branch of the Horse trams going along it too. That would be seriously cool....

You have to wonder what he has on them at the end of the day. It’s amazing how someone so grossly disliked and clearly terrible at the job they are doing and abysmal at putting any form of succession plan in place is still clinging on in there despite a press release nearly two months ago now saying he was retiring. He should just have been given a boat ticket and told to piss off. 

Maybe look closer to the very feeble and weak political leadership, not sure out of these who this person was employed under their ministerial role i.e. Cretney, Skelly, Gawne, Baker, Crookall and now Thomas, but he beat the bloody lot of them and they left him to his own agenda... They couldn't control or tame this man, they went before him (except Thomas).

Maybe look to their Ministerial leadership qualities, they created the beast and no one could control it.

You get the MHK's you deserve, some freaking useless and some good, its in your hands.

Harmer would make six.

Or maybe he actually had some merits in terms of his skills and experience but it was the wider DoI and successive politicians that were as much to blame? Just throwing it out there, as we always seem to blame one person on this rock and overlook more general institutional incompetence.

The institutional incompetence usually comes from those at the very top of the institution.

The level of incompetence has been in the toilet before Longworth started and will be there when he has long gone. Let's not pretend otherwise.

It’s what you get when you employ an incompetent bully it sets the whole culture the entire department operates too.

It wasn’t really. The previous director David Howard actually ran quite a tight ship and was pretty good at his job. It was only after Longworth started that the bloat and the spending like Saudi Princes on fairly basic infrastructure happened.
