Deferential, yes! Mutual, no.

Genius

From a speech by Tony Benn:

“The NHS held a boat race against a Japanese crew. After Japan won by a mile, a working party found the winners had people rowing and one steering while the NHS had eight steering and one rowing. So the NHS spent £5 million on consultants, forming a restructured crew of four assistant steering managers, three deputy managers and a director of steering services. The rower was then given an incentive to row harder. They held another race and lost by two miles, so the NHS fired the rower for poor performance, sold the boat and used the proceeds to pay a bonus to the director of steering services.”

Feedback!!

I have to say I am tired – so tired of being asked for feedback. Even in the doctor’s surgery this morning they were asking for feedback would you recommend this place to your friends and family?’ It’s a doctors for God’s sake! If somebody is not well, do I need to  recommend going to the local doctor?

I’ve been asked it at the post office!! ‘How likely are you to recommend the post office to your friends and family? I would suggest that if my friends or family were conscious enough to understand how to, say, write a letter they would probably already know the post office might be a good place to purchase a stamp and post a letter, don’t you think?
