Spectator Article Mentions Common Purpose

Monday, 7 September 2009

There's a Spectator article about culling quangos that is well worth a read because it briefly mentions Common Purpose, although only describing it as "faintly repellent", as well as making various other connections between organisations.

The Spectator's editor is now Fraser Nelson who, if there is going to be "new politics", is somebody to watch I think. His Coffee House postings were consistently excellent and I particularly remember this one where he reveals that he was bullied by Ed Balls, which gives us a rare glimpse into how New Labour bullies the media behind the scenes.

Common Purpose is indeed "faintly repellant" and it doesn't deserve any higher accolade.

Parasites grown bloated on taxpayer's money, but hardly the stormtroopers of change....the graduate list is less than overwhelming.

The woman's rant about "leading beyond your authority" is pure megalomania....people who do that are bullies and manipulators, and end up being betrayed rather than trusted.

The exact paragraph where CP is mentioned reads;

"Preferment goes to those already established within the system, and those joining public bodies from outside tend to be either the sort who have been schooled by one of those faintly repellent leadership organisations such as Common Purpose, or have been recruited from the big accountancy and management consultancy firms, most of which have been complicit in this government’s serial failures."

The fact that others in the public eye are mentioning CP in such a damning way shows that the message is getting through.

Common Purpose is more than "faintly repellant".

It is evil.

Yes, I was also very surprised that they actually mentioned Common Purpose in the Spectator. Usually whenever someone mentions CP they are labeled a conspiracy-theory loony. The Lefties will have a hard time pulling that one on the Spectator.
