'If you are alleged to have fiddled your expenses, you would expect a full investigation before you were fired'
actually if i was alleged to have fiddled thousands of pounds I am sure that I would be out of the door before I could say 'it was a simple mistake'
forgetting who their most important stakeholder is when companies get beyonda certain size, in this case google seems to have forgotten that its the people who use its search engine to find things that they want instead of what google gets paid for.
Quite a few people have told me how they 'dont use google anymore as you can never find what you want'
I suspect the people at google are clever enough to see their way through instead of just listening to the beancounters
And hey, the CEO has offered himself up to take a 20% pay cut to his base salary so thats all fair and good isn't it? Also his senior staff will take a 10% pay cut.
Err no, not when you see this.
“Mark Hurd (CEO) made $42.5m in fiscal 2008. HP gave him $25.4m in cash last year, including a $1.45m salary and $23.9m bonus money, according to compensation figures contained in the company’s proxy,” said one employee.
“He gets $42,514,524, of which ‘only’ $1.45m is his base salary. He offers to cut 20 per cent of his base pay. Well, that still leaves him with $41,354,524 plus his stock options. In fact, his pay cut of 20 per cent is really only one per cent.”
Of course the real 'undesirables' will simply come in on a yatch and completely miss being counted in or out.
yet another good idea without an ounce of common sense from, to quote someone almost as daft, the 'one eyed scottish idiot' and his cronies
'Journalists' from certain cynical web sites better only book one way tickets because they may have trouble getting back in!!
If the irony (or perhaps appropriateness?) of protesting against the growth of monitoring and retention of communications data via a business whose raison d'être is the monitoring and retention of communications data isn't too much for you to bear
Hmmm tough one - nope its not so now it has one more member
I'll get my coat, mines the one with the tinfoil hood
here's what good old dougy e-mailed me earlier, he is firmly on the fence;
I have not seen the detail of what is proposed so cannot express a final view
As it happens I am committed to being in Yorks next week and will probably not be in London at the time of the vote
I agree that transparency is desirable. Last year Cameron suggested that Tory MPs published their full expenses claim for a relevant quarter, I saw merit in that and did so and if he repeats that suggestion I am likely to do so again
I should be surprised if the present motion does not provide for pretty full disclosure so it is necessary to look at the detail with some care.
I do have reservations about publishing the details of all post 2OO5 to date claims. The cost and burearocracy seems to be disproportionate to any benefit
And for people who have never had a proper yorkshire pudding

Aunt Bessy makes yorkshire puddings.
She even makes ready cooked ones that just need heated.
(mine's the one with the couple of quid in the pocket to go buy some frozen ones)
corrected for you
