Digital Sinecure May 13, 2009

Posted by lifejacket in Financial shenanigans, Labour lunacy.

a grotesque amount of public money to waste on a pointless job

… is the opinion of the Taxpayers Alliance, concerning the government’s appointment of a “Director of Digital Engagement”. Salary? £160,000.

A grotesque waste, yes; though perhaps an indication that after its recent excruciating attempts at “digital engagement” – e.g. bizarre YouTube videos and a petition on the PM’s own website demanding his resignation (57,831 signatures at time of writing) – the government at least recognises that it needs someone to manage what it does on the web.

But heck, what am I saying? That would imply that the government is capable of recognising its own failings *laughs hysterically*
