Re: not neccessarily very good at brown-nosing...

I did see an example of that kind of thing where my company TUPE'd over staff from a company which itself had TUPE'd them, some years previously, from a semi-state formed from a government department.

There was one guy who had joined as a civil servant back in the day and been promoted by seniority ever since (even the civil service had changed policy since then) until he was earning more than partners in the company and had a much nicer company car but barely had the skills to answer a phone. He was, of course, too expensive to make redundant and on a defined benefits pension.
