  • The Un-Civil Servant

  • BB

    BB is Bureaucratic Bullsh*t.
    It can also stand for Big Brother.
    In the civil service, they are one and the same.

  • What’s it all about?

    Bureaucracy is an umbrella term for official incompetence; that is, incompetence which has officially been sanctioned as being good practice. No-where in the world is that more apparent than in the British public sector. Misadministration of public services is the backbone of every government led department.
    Trust me, I’m a civil servant.

  • It’s a disease

    Bureaucracy runs rife through the corridors of power like a child riddled with ADHD, high on fizzy pop, crisps and jelly-beans.

How welfare assessors told disabled woman to get ready for work

How welfare assessors told disabled woman to get ready for work – video | Society | guardian.co.uk.

Well, folks, that’s Atos for you! (I like to call them Atos-sers)  They are almost bigger bull-sh*itters than the civil service.  They make perfect bedfellows!  Do we even know who they are?  What their qualifications are?  Do we even care?  Maybe we should go to war on Atos – they seem a load of planks to me.

I was once assessed by them, during my six week sick leave for stress.  They assessed me over the phone, twice.  Both times the lady on the other end was very nice and made noises and placations in all the right places.  By the time I got back to work, I got a written warning!  Yet my GP had given me the time off and given me notes to take in.

Bloody back-stabbers.  Please belive me and take it from someone who knows – they are useless and their assessments worthless.  I once spoke to an ex-Atos employee and she told me they get a bonus for every person they get into work.  Not much of an incentive to keep people off then, is it?  And remember, it’s the government that appointed them.  That makes me so proud!  NOT!

More on this here – it makes for ANGRY reading!!  MORE Bullsh*t

Well, you lot may have had a two-year break from my BBB (Bureaucratic Bulls*t Blogging), but for the most part, I never left the rat infested sinking ship that is the uncivil service.

Where have I been?  Well, no where.  When I stopped blogging here about two years ago, I was just beginning a six-week sick leave of absence from work.  Six minutes away from work is heaven, but six weeks!  I tell you what – it was so good to have the devil off my back for a bit.  Why was I off sick for so long?  Temporary insanity.  Well, officially it was stress and depression, but I certainly felt like I was going insane!

For years I had warned my bosses I wasn’t coping.  I have tried so many times to transfer to another department, to reduce my hours, to beg for mercy!  But no.  They had to ignore my pleas and the inevitable happened, just what I had been warning them.  They really don’t give a sh*t about staff.  It’s all statistics and placating Joe Citizen.  As long as we pass on good stats to the politicians and our sorry ass customers don’t go knocking on their MP’s doors, they feel it is a job well done.  If it means the death of one or two of its staff, then so be it.

So, I am still in the same position I was two years ago and would you believe it?  The job has actually got worse!  I know, I can’t believe it either.  Utter sh*te!

At least it give me something to bash the keyboard about and Joe Citizen updated on our ridiculous government departments.

See you tomorrow – I hope!
