Clairwil Goes Beyond Her Remit........
Now if only I'd checked my comments in the last post before I went to work, specifically PaulB's suggestion that the government splash out on community sex classes. I was attending, for reasons that are a complete mystery to me, 'a community consultation' earlier today. Given that two woman left in tears and one shouted in a most disagreeable manner I suspect the idea of community sex classes would have lightened the mood somewhat.
As I've mentioned I have absolutely no idea what the purpose of my presence was, though I appear to be involved at a relatively senior level and spoke a couple of times. I have been involved in the planning of this for months and couldn't seem to find the right opportunity to ask why in the name of God I am involved. More worrying still I appear to be involved in 'taking things forward'. There has also been dark talk of 'the media'. I do not want to be on television, though I'd consider radio.
I hate meetings all that happens is that everyone makes the same point in a slightly different way or they disagree and a fight ensues. Actually I enjoy the fights because I just sit chipping in the odd fence sitting remark, everyone thinks I'm on their side and I end up getting all the dirt. As you can see I am rising by stealth.
The voluntary sector are wild for meetings, they cannot get enough of them. The private sector are exactly the same but are embarrassed by them and call them things like 'huddles' and 'pow wows', which more or less why I resigned from my last job.
Little else to report, other than the Blog Of The Week thing at the Mischief and some new snaps here. I remain obsessed with my camera.
