The worst of this, though, is that this is far from the only case where failure has been so handsomely rewarded. More recently, we see the civil servant who presided over years of chaos at the UK Border Agency promoted – to run the tax office (above).
This is Lin Homer, who was paid almost £1 million in salary and bonuses over four years as the first chief executive of the beleaguered agency, and is now rewarded for her incompetence with another highly-paid, prestige post.
Not forgetting that Lin Homer had previously been the chief exec of Birmingham City council and presided of the 'banana republic' voting fraud.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/ ... d-job.html
But don't expect the UKBA to be any better under its new chief exec, because he is a self confessed fan of Common Purpose (and no doubt a graduate of it).
"I like Common Purpose's Collab process, which brings together a diverse group of organisations into networks. This particular evaluation report relates to using the approach to improve the safety and wellbeing of children, young people and their families; and in my view, this approach would lend itself well to building local alignment for community budgets. Common Purpose has also developed a broader approach to local partnership platforms."http://www.idea.gov.uk/idk/core/page.do?pageId=29191930
