Found this post from a different forum and thought you guys might be interested



PRIVATE EYE ARTICLE

I was tickled by the following in Private Eye relating to an exchange between Richard Bacon MP and the MOD's Trevor Woolley. The exchange took place during a House of Commons Public Accounts Committee meeting into the sale of DERA / QinetiQ. Since the sale, some staff have made £millions from the sale of shares.

Bacon. “Mr Wooley are you a chartered accountant?”

Woolley “I am not”

Bacon “Are you a qualified financial person of any kind? Do you have any financial qualifications?”

Woolley “I do not have any financial qualifications?”

Bacon “What is your job?”

Wooley “I am the financial director of the Ministry of Defence”

Makes sense, I work for the Government and trust me,"Monty Phython" at the pinnacle of fame, couldn't make up some of the nonsense I see every-day. I only go into work to see what's going too happen next. Wink

My favourite which I wittnessed in Ottawa at DND HQ's. Two Lt/Col.s both PPCLI officers coming out of a confernce room loudly and graphicly telling a RCAF Brigader Gen. he had no idea what the f*** he was talking about. Being only a lowly Cpl. I found other things to pay attention to.
