Writing Bollocks

Writing Bollocks

Janet Street Porter had a go at Talking Bollocks in yesterday’s Independent. She termed it “Official Bollocks”and correctly identified the New Labour charlatans as a primary cause of this phenomena. Lately it seems to me that the one tangible thing that New Labour left behind is an ocean of bullshit. Talking Bollocks is one manifestation of this but lately I have started to realise it goes further. The weird consultancy led bollocks speak has led to miles of official documentation which achieves nothing. Targets, standards, policies, procedures – you name it, under New Labour business was taught that it was vital if they were to become “World Class’ (another bit of bullshit). Vision statements, frameworks and roadmaps were duly created. But all this bollocks requires people who are  extraordinarily boring and unimaginative to write it and tart it up to look smart. Who could we possibly get to do it? Of course, Tony’s old friends the business consultants. So in they came, charged everyone an arm and a leg to create this mind numbing garbage and off they went with a bag full of cash. The written bollocks was then stored on a file server somewhere never to be accessed again.
