I "love" anonymous 12;32 comment. It is so reminiscent of world war 2 line management on the Burma railway construction. "this (starving prisioner) cannot lift as much as this (well nourished soldier) so clearly does not deserve feeding for the lesser work" I was told the above with real names by a former POW Royal Marine in 1975. Does it only take 1 or 2 generations for the corruptive effects of power to reduce people to promulgating unjust comparisons and apparently sincerely believing they are " fair comment"? It should not surprise me- the only other command system that published acceptable policies, then took its senior management into closed rooms to brief on the actual" implementation and interpretation of the publication" I am currently aware of was the Third Reich. Not a paradigm I would wish to follow or be associated with in any way Mr Hunt, but each to his own.
