Accountability:Who Cares? – A Personal View

scandal-headline

What a tumult of hoary, institutional scandal has burst upon this country in recent times.

In the bosom of the Mother of Parliaments, the mother of an expenses fraud. At News International, endemic and management-endorsed phone hacking. At the BBC, and elsewhere, cover-up, or at least the turning of an institutional ‘blind eye’, to the worst excesses of moral depravity and exploitation.

"I wish I was a lawyer in a Big City firm...."

The expression ‘Christmas clubbing’ has taken on a sinister new meaning this week as it has been revealed that several of the Big City law firms have outsourced their now annual cull of PUPs (Partners who Under-Perform) to mercenary gangs of Canadian seal clubbers from the Gulf of St Lawrence as a further cost-saving measure.

The opportunistic gangs are being paid handsomely for spiking literally scores of surprised and defenceless PUPs at their desks as they stare wide-eyed into their Inboxes.

Those that do not get clubbed are being noosed in a particularly dark technique known as ‘de-equitising’.

We have recently been contacted by a number of very concerned News of the World employees …or should we say ex-NoTW employees.

Rocked by yesterday’s shocking developments, News of the World employees are now not only acutely concerned for their immediate future, but are also distressed about the potential long term career damage that may suffer by being, as they see it, unjustly tainted by the acts of others.

News of the World employees are angered that they are effectively being scape-goated and punished when they have done no wrong.

Synchronicity, Plum Pudding and the Twitterverse

Yesterday, I was taken by the notion that I should acknowledge my 9000th Twitter follower with a blog-post, whoever he or she …or it …may be.

Serendipitous? Risky? ….Well, yes. After all, it may be a nutter or a liberal, a poker or golf freak or indeed a twitterbot. In all probability it would be.

Nevertheless, the die was cast. The rule was set.

I resolved to blog on follower 9000 whoever he, she or it turned out to be. No tricks. No poetic licence.

It was to be a gesture intended as a thankful celebration of the glorious and provoking arbitrariness of the Twitterverse.
