"She will be replaced by Gerard Grech, who currently heads up global marketing at BlackBerry World."
So the deciding criteria is "prior fat cat position" rather than "can do, dynamic, straight talking, hard working type with history of success"? (1)
Why can't I secure fat cat six-figure-for-doing- jack-shit gigs? I could (if so minded) focus on the failures of my previous employers - admittedly never as epic as Bungleberry. I'd be willing to toe whatever political line of dogshit that was required, to free-lunch, to attend meetings with DCMS (and to attend them with a whole host of disempowered lackeys, as the snivel service seem to require).
Who appoints numpties to these sinecures? I am available! My principles and beliefs can be hired or put aside as the appointment demands. I promise I shall not associate myself with actually doing anything, and I shall forbid the lackeys from doing anything other than massaging statistics to prove success. Hire me!
