Just seen this on HR Wench’s blog. For a UK version, you’d have to replace Paulson with Darling, and AIG, Citigroup and Fannie and Freddie with Northern Rock, HBOS and RBS, but the principle is the same.
Funny how things can change in the course of just a few days. The Public Sector Rich List, published by the Taxpayers’ Alliance earlier this week, is already out of date. Top of the list was Iain Coucher, Chief Executive of … Continue reading
Maximum respect to Dawn Spalding, editor of Personnel Today, who managed to get a post up at 8.30 this morning about last night’s Personnel Today Awards. I was at the party until 2.30am too and I didn’t wake up until … Continue reading

HR Minion found this Star Trek poster, which looks like it’s from that famous de-motivational slides series. Those old enough to remember Star Trek, or geeky enough to have watched the repeats, will remember that every episode, the crew were beamed down … Continue reading
In uncertain times times, it is human nature to seek safety in numbers. Looking for a gang to join or a big tent to shelter in makes sense when the outside world looks dangerous. Iceland, after years of opposition, is considering joining … Continue reading
