  1. Haven't heard anything more about the publication of the results.

    Surely the Gand Dame isn't sitting on them for some reason...?

    I couldn't possibly comment any further... that would just be tittle-tattle wouldn't it...

  2. I recall that she was "hugely disappointed" last year. This year's results aren't expected to be any better. Her (and her cohorts in ExCom) days must surely be numbered.

  3. The Dame is gonna roll the survey results into a Christmas cracker to share with Dave nowhere man when he pops round for Christmas din dins.

    although I can understand your anger at not having a Labour government, let's not forget the architect of this fiasco was one Gordon Brown who discarded warnings about merging the old IR and C&E. And let's not forget that Strathie rise to power occurred under the last Labour Govt and her promotion to Perm Sec was as a reward for taking a chopper to Job Centres and destroying staff morale there. So please, feel free to hate Dave, but don't forget who the real criminal was in the first instance.

    My partner works in an HMRC call centre and I place the blame for the low morale within their team squarely with their team leader. Who will at some point in the future have their name published with the list of actions they have taken and threats they have made.

  6. I hear threats of conduct and discipline are being thrown at staff who do not get in because of the weather (this is second hand info but believable).

    What makes me laugh is that if the management had real management skills they would know that if you treat staff properly they would go the extra mile to get in even if the weather is bad (this is based on managerial experience).

    My anger at not getting a Labour gov?
    How the hell did you get that from my swipe at Hartnett and Strathie?

    "let's not forget the architect of this fiasco was one Gordon Brown who discarded warnings about merging the old IR and C&E".

    You dont say? Who would have thought it.
    Meanwhile WW11 Bomber found on the Moon.

  8. The results will be out next week now. The Grand Dame was too busy at the palace getting her shoulders tapped to sign off the engagement results of her staff.

    So it's good to see that everything is in it's natural order on Planet Strathie.
