The Uncivil Service

Still angry?
Oh hell yeah.
What sort of closed-minded, socially unaware, ethically brain dead, short-sighted, morally crippled, financially spaced out screaming misfits do we have attempting to run the engine of our country these days?!
Did we take a wrong turn somewhere back in the last century? Did we substitute red-taped bureaucrats who were dull but dependable for consultancy led bean counters with all the sense of civic duty you;d find in a tapeworm?

I work in the civil service, adn I am aghast at the whole damn thing....

So, RANT ON! Let;s see who joins in, and who denies...

As long as we don't degrade to some sort of modern Dark Ages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Ages), I think we'll be okay.

It'd be quite a shame if our society degrades and all the progress we've made as a species is suddenly in reverse.

Optimism. Yeeeaahhh.

I love your rant and how articulate you are! It's very entertaining to read. =D

Unfortunately, I can't deny the fact that a lot of systems are corrupted. Everyone is human even if they're Bill Gates or a famous celebrity. In the sense that, a total prick could become the president and be in charge of the whole god damn country through his family's powerful connections.They will have hidden agendas for their own benefits. Corruption is something no one can do much about unless you're one of the big players in the game.

so what's wrong with the system?

No system is perfect. Each government around the world has its own problem. Some are better than others. You can have endless debates with well informed individuals about that topic and it will all conclude with "this government is ARGUABLY better than that."

Humans aren't perfect. That makes it hard to create anything to perfection. And any notion of perfection is wholly dependent on how each person defines "perfect."

There will always be a something wrong with a system concocted by humans (especially one that serves millions of unique individuals each with their own needs, wants, and opinions of how things should work).

I think they should let the unemployed take over because they know whats wrong with things!

True enough, nobody expects the British civil service to be a shining jewel, flawless and perfect. But simply working would be nice ... it's outdated, outmoded, suffering constant changes of direction and a plethora of inefficient quick-fix solutions. It's a wheezing dinosaur, punch-drunk from rocks thrown at its head to make it change direction.
Systems of government are always going to be riddled with problems - simply put, you can;t please all the people all of the time. That's a given, and we all understand that one, however much we may not like the impact it has on us personally. But when the basic structure is pared down to the bone, undermined by thoughtless political manipulation and artless, bumbling delivery, it makes a problem into a disaster.
The machinery is, as I say, hopelessly out of date, underplanned and with all the functionality and streamlining of a cheese brick. Staff run in circles attempting to keep up with the latest (weekly) changes in deployment, procedure and above all stupendous amounts of name changing and branding. Higher management exist in rarified ivory towers where the colossal stupidity of endlessly stripping services down, increasing targets AND constantly wearing away at morale remain unobserved, where six-figure salaries and comfortable pay increases are given for incorporeal delivery adn the rest of us poor sods work at 7% under comparable salaries with the few perks we depend on (pension, holidays) being taken away by dubiously illegal practices and complete pay freezes.

Like I said, it's never going to be perfect. But it could at least be functional.

I didn't read your comment yet, but the sheer brilliance of your username would suggest that you are absolutely correct.

edit: I finished reading it. I agree.
