Look at that Twitter knobber demanding a source from the reply, as if there's no onus on Diane to back up her allegation.

Oh. smile

Tory cuts is the mantra that is repeated by labour and the media whenever they are in.

Doesn't matter if there are any facts behind it. There doesn't need to be just say Tory cuts I er and over

A few on radio four yesterday every sentence Tory cuts .....

My only interest in her is finding out how such incompetence can rise to a position of influence.

I'm genuinely fascinated as to how it can happen.

Does it happen in any other fields other than politics?

Well, the old thread seems to be languishing in moderator-land, so here's a new one...

Abbott has claimed that since 2010 the Tories have 'hugely increased youth unemployment'

https://twitter.com/HackneyAbbott/status/862950493...

Facts on youth unemployment:
2010 - 19.1%
2017 - 12.6%

Oops
She could have argued that the 2017 figures include 'zero hours contracts' and gig-type jobs.
Why, is that not employment?

I work in a Gig role and am very happy with my pay and hours. My wife works in a typical ZHC job and happy with her pay and hours.

Polls of actual ZHC workers show that the majority are happy with their hours/pay, much more so than people on fixed hours.

ZHC is a political football because it fits a sound bite. If we called it "flexible working" it would have far less impact.

From my experience, NHS management might be a good place to start looking.

I have no doubt that she has played the race card at ever single opportunity that she has been outed, to deflect the fact that she's a completely incompetent cretin and she's been doing it for so long now shes become virtually teflon coated, infact she could probably market a human teflon coating.

Yes, without a doubt her rise has coincided with political correctness and diversity targets etc...

Oh and shagging her boss.

Government, non-profits, Chinese companies and nepotism, they are the main ones for promoting idiots and politically adept idiots.
Most private ventures can select the 'wheat from the chaff', Labour/Union government employment laws allowing of course.

Common in Local Councils and to a lesser extent Corporate Boardrooms.

You need to add big Korean companies to that list - some of the stuff I've heard about is, well, wow.. smile
