We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Moon mist

We've been having a trying time of it with our betters and venting about it in the staff room.

"When you think about it..."


"If Policy Team aren't around, does it have any impact on the service we provide to the public?"

"Not a jot."

"This is true."

"And... They all bugger for the whole of March but we still get year end sorted. Every year."

"Not an a'porth of difference."

"So what's the point of Policy Team? Purely in terms of their impact on customer service?"

"They're the only ones authorised to sign the orders."

And it wouldn't make an a'porth of difference if the people who decided who should authorise the orders were gone as well.

The wv is mings. Somewhat apt. Central policy teams are invaluable. I am reminded of this every day at work by ours. They claim to be the thinkers. Which is displayed by their contemplative poses, chin in hand. Any more action would spoil the thought process.

Gadjo: in some cases, nobody does decide who should authorise the orders except the person who decides they have authority.

Madame DeF: if we didn't have Policy Team we wouldn't have anyone to tell us we can't do things required by both the government and our customers.

Oh! we don't have a centralised, or a dispersed, policy team. It sounds like just the job for me. Should I suggest we introduce a central policy team (me), what should I say that I'll do? Will I get my own expenses account and code?

This could be the elves sitting around talking about Santa!~

Wendy: nature abhors a vacuum. Go for it girl!

Lavinia: Santa will have some accounting to do for himself when the workers' revolution comes. The Free Reindeer Collective have plans involving a mince pie and a carrot.
