Well admit we do have one, sometimes we stare into it
at the FCCL Office,
at the FCCL Office,
BUT it's only used for very important things, such as
trying to ascertain what we have written that makes ill people fit to work (and when we do find out we will be straight on the blower to Iain Duncan Smith or maybe try and sell our technique to ATOS) obviously we wouldn't dream of profiting from our exploits but would pay ourselves a nice sensible salary of £28k a year in line with the people whose jobs we aim on this blog to defend.
But so far we aren't doing very well and as our crystal ball is still under warranty we may have to return it to the International Crystalball Organisation for some fine tuning
|What do you think of the new nail polish btw?|
So why today didn't we need one?
Well as we have said on a different blog ( here ) occasionally the karma fairy comes along and gives us a hand. And as we said yesterday in our post TITS
we think WYFRS use of social media is dire!
This morning we received an email from Mehboob Khan (the chair of the fire authority) informing us that the Local Government Association, Safer, Stronger Communities had interesting news, he had as well as appearing as a witness at a parliamentary select committee investigating the horsemeat scandal (aka lasagna- gate) he has been involved in this ............
Fire and rescue services e-bulletin: March 2013
I have added the link HERE BUT unless you log on to the LGA site
( for which you need a government email address),
.gov.uk, nhs.net etc
you might not be able to access it , so much for transparency !!!!
Hidden in the pages - the karma fairy drew our attention to this
And guess who its hosted by
THE LONDON FIRE BRIGADE
It is a bargain at £80 + vat
Best of all when you go to the topics pages it says
Can social networking improve staff relations and boost morale? Should social media be managed or controlled? Can social media improve employee performance?
SINCE FCCL BECAME POPULAR
WYFRS REISSUED THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY TO ALL STAFF
WE THINK IN AN EFFORT TO STOP THEM INTERACTING WITH US
Should politicians be tweeting and using Facebook? What are the benefits for politicians? Has social media improved public awareness and interaction with elected representatives?
WELL THIS MADE US CHUCKLE AS WELL, COS IF YOU CHALLENGE A POLITICIAN ON FACEBOOK, CHANCES ARE THEY WILL BLOCK YOU !!!!!!
Anyway all the details are on the LFB website which you can access from our news pages
So hopefully IF very soon, if the penny drops and WYFRS stump up £80 (plus vat )
we might soon be seeing
ooooohhhh but there is one ray of hope ACO Dave Walton has a twitter account - you can follow him by clicking here in fact WYFRS has one too but its very quiet and spasmodic.
