It is most interesting, how this is being regarded. The idea now is to instantly forget negative things and push on to the next part of the conveyor belt. Nobody cares what happens to you, nobody cares if you have any rights, nobody has any responsibility.
As a very old-school type that protects their staff, deals with their own problems, helps other people where they can, this never stops shocking me. Everyone I met this morning at my breakfast meeting had a story. The worst one was a legal financial services abuse story, about which none of the thousands of people who have to implement it are likely to do anything.
Hence, even before the Conservatives erode things still further, nobody has any rights, nobody has any responsibility and nobody cares. From a situation twenty years ago where I was barking at companies for failing to manage their data properly, we now have a situation where nobody knows what management means, as far as they are aware it is something to do with having power over other people and making the paperwork look correct.
It is exhausting and terrifying living in a world like this, where people like SB are free to express their insanity by taking it out on other people. I am a very bottom line thinker, and my feeling was that if we cut to the bottom line and dealt with the health issue, other things would subside. It was not until I was told that the stuff I had seen related to probable coercion that I became furious.
So, there is still action to be taken, because in the normal course of events, any flow of information is now likely to be impeded by normal means. Nobody wants bad news, and nobody cares what happens to anyone.
At least part of the problem is better, but I imagine some things will be worse.
Anyway, it certainly seems as if I should entirely ignore the implications of being falsely accused of stuff that isn’t relevant.
Sending an email and giving people books has never been causes for accusations and professional detriment in my experience, and I frankly want to see this company hauled over the coals for it. They detected vulnerability because of my grief, and they exploited it.
I had already dealt with the immediate problem when they decided to make things worse, and I was told, as if this was some gospel truth, that they ‘had to be seen to be doing their jobs.’ Their job is not to make people frightened or make sure they have no income. Their job as managers is to make it possible for people to work without being terrified by a mentally ill, corrupt individual who feeds on terror.
Ironically I had had a t shirt made ten days ago, ‘because we matter’ being the slogan. It arrived today. I didn’t find it funny.
