Parachutee quiz

What do these six have in common? Perhaps this might help.  No?  Try this.

Look like disgruntled housewives, don’t they?  Or something the cat dragged in.  Can you identify more than two of them? All six have blighted the lives of millions and a couple of them have raked off millions at taxpayer expense to support their lifestyles.  One has special wimmin only meetings in secret rooms.

The big questions are – who are they, how did they get there, why are they still there and who TF is hiding behind them, getting them to do the dirty work?

A further question – what do these above have in common with this below?

Are HP off their effing brains, third time around?  Twice, consecutively, a parachutee like this has nearly destroyed HP, a proper CEO brought it back from the brink and what does the effing board go and do?  Only goes and puts in another affirmative action clone!!!!!  I mean, are they getting a billion dollar sweetheart deal from somewhere for taking her on?

Hope they go down the gurgler good and proper this time.  I’ve said it a hundred times – as managers, women make great administrators.  And this particular type of  “woman” is one you never, ever, want in charge of a major company, particularly if your further career depends on her.  And as for letting this type near a public utility – I can only think it’s down to  an evil sense of humour.

Read this if you will.

WTF were they thinking, the HP board?  Less apoplectically, the Register puts it this way:

The news that Meg Whitman has taken over the top job at HP has left some in the industry scratching their heads. Sure, she was a reasonably safe pair of hands at eBay (besides splashing out billions on Skype for reasons best known to herself), but as a replacement for Leo Apotheker, she’s unlikely to be a success.

Understatement of the year.  Safe pair of hands = administrator.  Let me say it one last time: “As managers, women make great administrators.”

Just look at her, for goodness sake.  Just read her CV.  Sheesh!

    It’s high time HP’s owners sacked the board. Heaven knows, Fiorina was bad enough, but the latest bozo and this hapless replacement show they haven’t the basic skills to run the proverbial whelk stall.

    Which, of course, raises all sorts of very relevant questions about corporate cronyism and its role in the current mess we’re in.

    The Left whines about capitalism – I’d like to know where they think they’ve found some!

    It is well known that the public schoolboys who achieve high rank in life are still in love with their grotesque, brutal matrons. This is why so many chromosomal unfortunates are given such, ah, dominant positions. In former days such displays of masochistic delight would have attracted public opprobrium. But in an age of enforced (at the point of the WHIP) equality, such approval is stimulated that Guardian hacks gasp for more.

    “What do these six have in common?”

    They do all look remarkably similar. In ‘Criminal Minds’, they’d say this was a ‘victim profile’.

    Sadly, it’s us who are the victims.
