This article reflects my experience and frustration of working in the public sector for a few years. Most of the senior management I clashed with were not awful people (with a couple of notable exceptions), and I think they wanted to do the right thing - but genuinely fell for all these lies and crooked ideology. Always talking about “seeing the big picture” and such the like too, without any ability or inclination to actually do that.

Who are we all voting for in the leadership election :cry:


#437

Nobody, because there isn’t going to be one?

If every party had to have a leadership election everytime its leader did something ill-advised and grotesque in the company/on behalf of shady actors from foreign states we’d have one every week. I wouldn’t worry.

There’s a stronger case to be made for execrably bad judgement making someone unfit to lead a political party but… not sure that holds in 2018 either so, here we are.
