My eternal thanks go to the anonymous mole in HCT's Central Services, who was kind enough to provide the following update as a comment to my previous posting. Mr Mole stated that there were "so many others deserving of attention in the Hall of Infamy", and then went on to provide a breakdown of HCT's current brood of academic retards and the like.
I do hope you enjoy the reading material below. My recent blog stats inform me that these pages have been getting a great deal of attention in the Academic Services compound, so I presume there will be more of the same to come - a thrilling prospect!
Anyway, here they are - HCT's Top Ten Shameless Sonsabitches!!
1/ The senile, out-of-touch Provost, Mark Drummond, who like Hitler in the bunker moving phantom armies around, moves phantom academic improvements, not to mention new hires around, neither of which have much basis in reality.
2/ Phil Hartley, deputy-provost and 2-dimensional California side-kick of Drummond: big salary, waste of space, doesn't really know where he is.
3/ Jim Pounder - deputy-provost academic, the bloke from Sheffield who's everyone's "best friend", until it doesn't serve his purpose, any longer. Then you're fucked. He's also a terrible leader, when it's most needed. But, hey, his real reason for being here, anyway is as a holy-roller, intent on educating the unwashed heathen of the power of his main geezer in heaven.
4/ Dr. Evil's Mini-me, Jed Ryan, an obsequious moron, who is so far up Farid's ass, he's all but disappeared as a real person
5/ Bejat what's-her-face, the deputy director of DWC: another stupid Emirati woman in a position far beyond her abilities, yet who has enough power to cause real havoc.
6/ Senthil Nathan - Martin Bormann to Tayeb's Hitler. Arguably more powerful than Tayeb as he has Tayeb's ear and often directly influences many a draconian policy. Has the personality of a turnip, thoroughly reprehensible.
7/ Paul Mace - corrupt, on-the-take Tayeb henchman and probably one of his main bagmen. Formerly known as "cement head", emasculated by his harridan wife. Had to have special "pedagogical" lessons before they let him enter the classroom.
8/ Rudi Young, Capo di tutti capi at HR. Rules his little pile of concrete with a heavy hand: much feared and hated by his employees....
9/ Tiny Tim Smith, (Al Ain) all round LITTLE sh*t and backstabbing SOB.
Actually, I'm surprised that there are only nine names above - there must be SO many more! Does anybody out there care to add a monicker or three to the list? There's plenty of space below to nominate your personal enemy...
