Companies like Waterford Crystal talk about ‘root and branch restructuring’. In this image, the senior executives are like expert tree surgeons, tending to a frail and endangered conifer. Only by a drastic pruning programme -and copious quantities of manure- can the tree stand. The costly employees are like canker.

I just remembered something. The other night, the BBC 10 O’Clock News was showing shocking pictures of the jihadist training camp. And it was revealed that the suspected terrorists had gone paintballing as a cover for terror training.
What self-respecting terrorist would go paintballing?
The type of person who keeps under his pillow not a copy of the Koran , but of Who Moved My Cheese?, that’s who.
We are entering a dangerous epoch. These terrorists now move among us with chilling ease, fuelled on a lethal cocktail of jihadist eliminationist ideology and middle management change acceleration methodology.
They want to have us all live under Sharia law, with beheadings and stuff. And when we protest, they just shrug and offer platitudes like “people simply need to come to terms with the opportunities brought by change” and “we have a lot of great stories to tell”.
KARL MARX suffered from a skin disease that can cause severe psychological effects such as self-loathing and alienation, according to a British dermatologist.“In addition to reducing his ability to work, which contributed to his depressing poverty, hidradenitis greatly reduced his self-esteem. This explains his self-loathing and alienation, a response reflected by the alienation Marx developed in his writing.”
I am happy to report that my own arse is refreshingly free of pustulating carbuncles, a response reflected by the relative scarcity of posts of late.
