Got something to say? / National Decline; signs and symptoms
« on: May 31, 2017, 08:14:56 am »
We are investing huge, huge amounts in our railway system. To modernise it and make it fit for purpose.  Great project, but, as has been pointed out by colleagues abroad, abysmal project management skills.  Then, the latest debacle at BA, where all our armchair IT pundits know what went wrong.  Sure, things go wrong all the time, so the real IT skill was putting things right, hopefully before many even noticed.  Both skill sets, project management and IT systems are skills that we hope to sell abroad.  Along with our banking and financial skills. Mind, mind the latter is a bit difficult given the court cases pending.  If you were in another Country; is there anything at all you might want from us?

Got something to say? / West Berks Museum

What's happened to our museum?  I took my nephew round today, whilst the feminine side of the family went shopping.  It's been a quite time since I've been, and I know there have been cuts, but this is ridiculous.  We saw more local history in the Weatherspoon's pub at lunch. 

Got something to say? / Is it only West Berkshire suffering cuts?

Does anyone know if the other Councils in the district are also in the same predicament as West Berkshire with regard to funding?  They can't spare a bean and are even thinking about shutting libraries and making people redundant, yet Newbury Town Council for instance can find the money to put up a new flag pole and can even afford a new cafe in Victoria Park.  That doesn't compute as they say.
