Final call.. any FED in the building?.. customers waiting.
The murky world where politics and the media interacts and plies its trade has produced its latest creation, the hue and cry on the FED.
Example A below.
For the bunch of self serving, scheming chancers who earn a trade in politics to point a finger at the upper reaches of the FED regarding lifestyles and expense accounts is eye watering hubris
God knows I have serious issues with the FED as my previous posts make clear.
But in terms of doing it large with the 'expenses and entitlements' the FED are kicking a ball around in the Evo- stik leagues and our Parliamentarians are 'Galacticos'
They are baying for root and branch reform of the FED and yet they cant find time to run a Bill which would allow voters of a constituency to call for a by election if they want to get rid of a sitting MP.
From the perspective of someone at the 'customer facing' end of the business, the FED appear like a rabbit caught in the headlights.
They have lost control of events.
If they are doing something behind the scenes ( other than rolling over and getting their bellies rubbed) they need to let the people who pay the subs know.
Sell Mothership Leatherhead, downsize, use the money to help us get down to core business which is to effectively protect and promote the interest of its members.
In short, to use a phrase, 'strap a pair on' and get out there swinging.
Because I know if you don't get a grip before its too late I will come into work one day and open up an E mail from the FED and there will be the beaming face of Chairman VAZ looking back at me on the screen.
And I will know then that we are well and truly and utterly shafted.
