Re: Point Missed: More work for Mr Jobsworth
My feeling is that the best people to report things to are people who will roll up their sleeves , put on big boots, and say "Ok, let's go get them!".
OK , having to report you have a broken fence may be embarrasing, but only if the broken fence register is posted on the outside of the town hall, and people who own fences go and look at it. If it just gets filed in the 'broken fence' drawer and never sees the light of day, all you have done is make extra work.
Perhaps companies should have to report such failures in thier annual reports, and on a case-by-case basis to shareholders?
But if officialdom wants reports, then officialdom should send a 'policeman' out to respond.
