NB: I’ve revised this post as I made a total mess of the header on the orignal. I’ve also added additional detail.

Time for an update.

1. Didn’t do an awful lot today. Shuffled some papers. Asked a colleague for their opinion on a matter twice to kill time. Made several unnecessary cups of tea.

2. Realised that ringing up potential clients can be entertaining. The odd would-be client can be quite pleasant. There seems to be a demarcation between those in the public sector and those in the private sector. Those in the public sector don’t mind a bit of a chat while those in the private sector tend to be more curt. This is only anecdotal evidence as systemic auditing sampling did not take place.

3. Received an automated job rejection email from a company telling me that I did not fit their selection criteria and would not be invited to Interview. I wouldn’t have minded but I had applied many months ago and had assumed that I wasn’t ‘fit for purpose’. No need to rub it in guys.

4. Read in the news that the ‘Peace Camp’ in the City has been removed and the happy campers evicted. (The majority of the peace protestors had moved on anyway as I suspect living under canvas in torrential rain is a pretty miserable experience which can only be sustained if you happen to be Army or Special Forces). This actually is bad news. Unfortunately it shows that financial capitalism is very much alive and kicking and a move to a new economic order is unlikely to occur. More importantly, the opportunity for me to take early retirement and live happily ever after and avoid auditing for another twenty or so years has probably gone up in smoke.

All I can say is ‘oh dear’.
