¡Ay, caramba! Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Suitcases

This week we said goodbye to our Communications Manager Leonie who decided that four and a half years of trying to communicate everything that we do was quite enough and that she’d rather travel around South America in the sunshine without any responsibility or having to get up for work every morning. Personally I can’t see the appeal.

My friends, Boris Johnson here. You will have observed that I have been appointed to the grandest of parliamentary departments, The Foreign Office, a wondrous honour for a lowly Old Etonian like I.

I outline below some of the dazzling examples that we have to offer.

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

There is a vacuum of leadership across the country. Turn on the news and you’ll hear of power struggles, leadership contests and plots to overthrow the incumbent. Westminster has become Lord of The Flies, Othello and The Thick of It rolled into one.

With so many leadership campaigns now under way, I thought that this week we could take a look at how you can maximise your own chances of assuming a position of power. At the rate we’re going there won’t be anyone in the country who isn’t standing for a parliamentary position soon.

Enjoy your weekend
