This Day In Snookland....We Don't Need No Stinking Merritts!


From Rob Shaw in the VT-C:

B.C. has seen a sharp decline in the number of government employees who are hired on merit and clearly qualified for their jobs, the province’s merit commissioner has told MLAs.

Only 56 per cent of government appointments in 2012 were done with clear documentation of selection criteria and relevant qualifications, said Fiona Spencer. That’s down from 80 per cent in 2007, and is the lowest level since independent audits began, she said...

And they don't even care how they spell 'merit' either.


Because things like reality, facts and grammar mean next to nothing in Snooklandia.




Sparkle Ponies!

Wondering about the original mention of sparkling equine thingies?...It's....Here.

Thanks, once again, NVG for the hard numbers.

'Cause math is, of course, hard.

Which is why the Snooklandians appear to ignore it all costs.

Like, say, when deciding on the 'neighbourhood' of the cost of the Massey Tunnel replacement bridge.
