I don't know about everyone else but last year seemed to be the year for messages. Messages from the politicians, at work there were messages from Ministers and heads of this and heads of that. Even further afield all the world illustrious leaders seem to be pouring them down every one's neck. I see a headline today that Nick Clegg has given a New Years Message which will shortly be followed by others speaking equally meaningless drivel from whichever political party they purport to represent.
At my place of work last year, every week a different one was coming down. Sorry folks, we are cutting this and cutting that but hey, we have to do it it is all to the good, we feel your pain and we value you!.....Yeah right ;)
I see that Mr Cameron went out to see the troops in Afghanistan before Christmas. I laughed! After a year of redundancy notices, budget cutting exercises where their allowances and terms and conditions have all been ripped up, I think morale is pretty damn low. I wonder what was the thinking behind his visit? Well, I am SURE *she says in a sarcastic tone* it made them feel better :/
However, I know one thing, my healthy New Years resolution is to avoid all of those meaningless, patronising messages next year......
If I want my head pecked...I shall go watch a woodpecker ;)
