Lovely! Just what we need. Another one sliding in on a huge salary. Human Resources. My God, what happened to the days when he or she was called the Personnel Officer who sat in an office, somewhere well out of the way of all that mattered and counted bloody star binders, paper clips and now and then said, 'how bloody are you. Have you got rid of your headlice yet'.
Human Resources! As if they needed to imply there was some other species that walked, crawled, flew or swam amongst us as we toil away muttering, 'this bloody PFI contract was a huge mistake'.
Human Resources! I'll bet my neighbours left testicle that there are legions of them holed up in that Hospital shuffling bits of paper, sending emails, noting this, noting that and fiddling around to find ways of making the empire safe from future cuts. There's no end to it! We are doomed.
