  • 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.

G4

The Gangsters

. . . need I say more?

You probably already know how crap G4S are.  Unfortunately they are contracted to give security to civil service sites.  Now, on our site, the Keystone cops would give  more competent service.

Because our site is large, there are quite a lot of security officers.  We have a main entrance and a side entrance.  G4 are experiencing budget constraints like every other company and because of this, the side entrance is only unlocked for parts of the day.  The main entrance security is beyond a joke.  I hope no terrorists are reading this!

Let me just digress slightly and maybe give the terrorists a little laugh.  There is another government benefit site not far from the one I work at.  That has a main entrance and also a side entrance, but also a small back entrance.  Now, the back entrance isn’t manned.  Civil servants gain entry through use of their passes swiped in front of an electronic lock.  This entrance is nowhere near any other entrance, in fact it’s not really in sight of any one as it is behind all the buildings in a corner that leads to a side road.  Many a time I have walked past this entrance and seen civil servants nipping out of it for a cigarette, then going back in and not even bothering to see if the gate closes behind them.  Several times I have noticed the gate left open slightly because of the lazy bloody civil servant and his/her total disregard for security.  Obviously G4 are unaware of this as it still happens.  Any one could walk in, set their bomb or spray their bullets and walk out again before the last brick or body hit the ground.

Now, back to my site.  Whether you drive in or walk through the gate, the security guard who is meant to check your pass, glances quickly at you, not your pass, then turns back to his mates in the security hut, scared of losing the thread of his conversation.  On a couple of occasions, I have flashed my drivers licence and my key card instead of my pass and still been waved through.  Bloody useless!  They should stop all cars and personnel and physically check passes.

I have done security work both in the forces and the private sector and have never seen such incompetent security.  I wouldn’t give these idiots the security contract for ‘The Early learning Centre’.

P.S. Does anyone else think their logo says “GAS”?
