It seems that what I have been saying for some time now, has at last been officially recognised. Namely that Nanny makes people sick.
A report from Bupa has shown that local government workers have the most days off sick annually. They take an average of 11 days off sick a year, more than twice as many as hotel and leisure trade staff who have the best UK illness record.
Nice to know that our taxes are being used so effectively!
Proof, if ever it were needed, that Nanny poses a clear and present to danger to the health and wellbeing of the citizens of this country.
Why do you think that the sickness rates are so high?
Let me take a stab at this:
1 Working for Nanny is mindnumbingly boring and unsatisfying
2 Nanny and her staff are not respected by the people who pay for them, ie us
3 There is no genuine pride or sense of achievement in working for Nanny
4 The tasks set by Nanny for her staff are pointless and irrelevant
5 There is a culture of bullying and discrimination endemic in Nanny's public sector, eg Prescott's old orifice
6 The public sector is overmanned, and there is simply too little to do that is of any worth
7 Nanny's public sector is overburdened with bureaucracy and petty rules
8 The staff working for the public sector are not fit for the job
Just a few thoughts, feel free to add your own.
