Crowdsourcing/job share opp?
Wonder if we could send in a CV for a 'Victor Ulture', which would be able to tick all the demographic boxes, hard & soft skills etc. If it needs a 'face', then could expense an animatronic CDIO & through cloning that, would show a huge productivity advantage over other C-level types. The tech has moved on a lot since Max Headroom, so I reckon this is viable.
(But even though I tend to avoid government work like the plague, I suspect El Reg is right about the preferred candidate already being known to government.)
