Gregor Gall describes new management techniques as "making public sector workers' lives a misery".
Just what are the horrendously awful conditions that these workers are having to operate in? Er...
In one HRMC [sic] office in the north west of England, local management established what the workers there have labelled a "Guanteddymo Bay". All staff's teddy bears were removed, staff said, by "dawn raids" and "special rendition" from their desks and placed in a locked glass case so the workers can still see their teddy bears but not touch them.
Let's take a few seconds to take that in. These workers' major beef with their management is that they had their teddies taken away!?
How fucking old are these people? Has the HMRC introduced a new policy of recruiting straight from primary schools without telling us? And as for "Guanteddymo Bay" - words fail me.
I'm not sure what's funnier. The fact that there are people employed by our Government who require a teddy bear on their desk in order to do their jobs, or that Mr Gall saw fit to tell us about this on CiF and (presumably) expected his concerns to be taken seriously!
