Our minister for justice was yesterday forced into making two apologies for scandalous remarks that he made about other politicians recently. It’s about time that he has been pulled up on his very vocal behaviour with such remarks. I just can’t understand how other politicians have been shamed over less embarrassing behaviour in the past. I’ve said it before and I say it again, we have to question why some politicians get away with this kind of nonsense and others have to resign – maybe we should see more resignations… source:Irish Times

A report out in the Times today suggests that senior management have a quality of life, worse than that of the gravely ill. Quite frankly I have to dispute this and I cannot help but wonder how this conclusion was arrived at. Managers delegate, that is all that they do, especially senior level management. It is middle management and the quarks of the employment realm (i.e. the workers) who suffer on the back of empty promises and super-delegated workloads, while many senior level managers are conducting business on the golf course. It’s laughable! source: Irish Times
