Know a few buzz words and able to give a PowerPoint presentation...

“vision, purpose and narrative”, it’s what every track and trace programme needs :roll: a snip at £500,000.

As a boy, I asked one of my mentors at work what was a consultant. He told me it was a man who borrowed your watch and charged you £10 to tell you the time.

Consultancy seems to be all about who you know and not what you know. I’m still laughing at the “Vision, purpose and narrative” line.

Seems a total waste of money, the new set up is clearly just to divert attention from the incompetence that the focus should be on.

No my words, but there's no much to argue with.
Dido Harding encapsulates the Johnson culture. Failed as boss of TalkTalk, failed at track-and-trace, now promoted to oversee England’s public health with no experience or expertise. In this country there’s no limit to how high you can fail if you’re friends with the right people

But she could always be investigated by the govt health advisory board. But then perhaps not her husband is on that.

"Dido Harding is a Tory peer & ran discredited, centralised test & trace. She has been appointed to run the body which will replace Public Health England (PHE). Her husband, Tory MP John Penrose is a board member of a think tank which called for PHE to be abolished. Join the dots!"

She demonstrated her incompetance at the helm of TalkTalk in the aftermath of the hack.

Why is anyone surprised by any of the recent stuff?
